    British Airways' staff saved the airline enough fuel to power 550 flights from Heathrow to New York last year following the introduction of an online suggestion box.

    More than 200 fuel-saving ideas were submitted by pilots, cabin crew, engineers and ground staff.

    Some of the more unusual suggestions included replacing glass wine bottles with plastic, reducing the amount of water carried onboard, and descaling toilet pipes on Boeing 747 and 777s. The latter suggestion saved £600,000 as a result of reduced weight - and also improved the performance of the toilets.

    Lessons I'm sure a lot of airlines could benefit from.
