We found the same to be true to exist within a fleet of corporate aircraft. 
Those that were flown by pilots that smoked clearly had a track record of 
higher incident of electronic repairs as opposed to those that were flown by 
non-smoking flight crews.   The planes and electronics packages were 
identical.  The increased repairs contributed to higher operating costs. 
Thus a new corporate policy where crew smoking was banned in every aircraft. 
The result was higher reliability, lower incident of failure, and several 
new non-smoking pilots as the "old puffers" would not comply with the new 
corporate policy.
