Flight Attendant Loses Job After Facebook Remark
She said she wanted to throw coffee in a customer’s face, because the customer was the daughter of someone she despises, former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
The flight attendant caused a stir in the Thai online communities last week for posting hostile comments about Thaksin’s youngest daughter, Paetongtarn Shinawatra. She also posted a picture of Paetongtarn’s seating number on a Bangkok-to-Hong Kong flight she worked on Nov. 25.
Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific said Monday on its Thailand Facebook page that the posting of a passenger’s personal information was unauthorized and against the airline’s privacy rules. It said, without elaborating, that the flight attendant is “no longer an employee.”
