BA pilot on £100,000 a year sacked for texting crude photo of himself to woman he met on a plane

A British Airways pilot has been sacked after he allegedly sent a sexually explicit photograph of himself to a woman. 

Martin Greathurst is understood to have met the woman on a flight operated by another airline. The pair were both passengers.

The pilot is alleged to have later sent her a mobile phone picture message of a sexual nature.

BA managers became aware of the incident after the woman – who is not a BA employee – complained to the police, according to airline sources.

Mr Greathurst, a pilot for more than 20 years, was dismissed for gross misconduct following a disciplinary hearing.

He has since appealed against the decision.

The 51-year-old, who earned about £100,000 a year, began his career with Dan Air, which was Britain’s biggest independent charter airline before it ran into financial problems in the Eighties.
