British Airways Workers in Brothel?

Six British Airways cabin crew are facing firing after they refused to work a flight becuase they were too tired after a sleepless night.  Why were they so tired?  Because they slept in a brothel near JFK.  How did that happen?  The airline put them up at the Diplomat Motor Inn, which is apparently rented by the hour on some occasions.  The staff said they were up all night as prostitutes and pimps (their words, not mine) were using all of the rooms in the hotel, including on several occasions trying to get into the room they were staying in.

But the best part of this is that the headline in the Daily Mail was "British Airways Staff Face Sack After Night in NY Brothel."  The prostitutes also faced sack all night, but that's kinda different.
