British Airways has said it will “fully investigate’ claims that three of the company’s cabin crew were caught running naked through a Singapore hotel.

The trio were banging on the doors of other guests following a game of “spin the bottle” in their room, according to reports.

It happened after the crew completed a 14-hour flight from Heathrow Airport.

A spokesperson for BA told Yahoo: “We expect the highest standards of behaviour from our teams around the world at all times and we're investigating what happened.

“We do not tolerate unruly behaviour by colleagues and will always fully investigate claims and take whatever action is required.”

The trio were apparently sent home and could lose their jobs after a complaint was made by bosses to a BA official.

The claims appeared in the Sun newspaper.

“It didn't take long for 'spin the bottle' to start - it's a drinking game with ludicrous and increasingly daring forfeits designed to get everyone steaming drunk,” one source told the newspaper.

“Suddenly, three were tasked with running up and down the corridors to create havoc. In their state they didn't think this was a bad idea.”

The paper reported two men and one women were involved in the risky game.

“Drinking is far too expensive in Singapore for the young fleet, so provisions are taken for everyone to have a good time after.

“There were some frisky crew on this plane. There was snogging and stripping and fumbling between the crew, who were all naked.”

It is not the first time BA crew has been in trouble in Singapore.

The Sun reported that officials at the same hotel are fed up with the behaviour of BA crew after allegations of sex assault and a staff member being thrown in a pool.
