Two British Airways cabin crew face the ax for mocking a 15kg colleague about her weight in a WhatsApp group.

The flight attendant, who is in her early 20s, was left horrified after a friend showed her the messages because she was not in the chat.

And furious colleagues urged her to take the messages to her bosses after the woman, from Wiltshire, was left terrified to return to work.

The pair have now been withdrawn from service, with flights left unstaffed as they stretched cabin crew services while they were away.

They could now be fired if found guilty of misconduct.

Now five more from the same WhatsApp group are facing scrutiny from the airline after their behavior was exposed.

“The poor victim of the vicious fat jokes has been left completely helpless,” a source said. The sun on Sunday.

“I had no idea her colleagues looked down on her so much. Her cruel comments left her afraid to leave the house. She felt victimized. “This was disgusting bullying.”

They added that the woman had hired a personal trainer and joined a gym in an effort to lose weight before the abuse.

This is because airline crews must be within a height and weight range so they can fit into seats and reach overhead lockers.

They must have a height of between 2.01m and 1.575m. There is no specific weight requirement, but it has been previously reported that it must be proportional to your height.

British Airways said: “We have a zero-tolerance approach to harassment and always fully investigate any allegations brought to our attention.”
