London, UK - Two British Airways planes sabotaged after being covered in foam. A discontent employee is blamed for it.

One Boeing 777 and one 787 planes were covered by five tons of fire retardant in the incident that happened on May 3rd. A disgruntled airline staff facing either redundancy or signing up to a cheaper contract is under investigation as the suspect, an insider told.

The Boeing 777 and 787 planes will be out of service for months after their fuselages were damaged. And the final cleanup bill is expected to cost the airline hundreds of thousands of pounds. At least 931 engineers, some of whom were at the scene, are among the 12,000 staff getting the boot.

But British Airways has insisted a technical issue was to blame.

“Suppressant foam is not easy to clear up. This mess is going to take weeks to sort out. It’s ruined the tools, aircraft, everything in sight,"

a British Airways employee said.
