A pilot and a flight attendant for Air New Zealand were suspended over their photos with a blow up doll in the Air New Zealand cockpit.
Perhaps Air New Zealand wasn’t a fan of them using the auto-pilot.
While I’m sure it is an unconventional approach, it has saved lives in the past.
The situation in this case was a little different.
Surely you can’t be serious.
But in all seriousness, I’m not 100% sure what the big deal is.
Yes, it is unprofessional. It is definitely unprofessional. But so were those Snapchats I sent after my fifth tequila this weekend.
The photos, which were believed to have been taken about a year ago, were reportedly shared to Facebook and Instagram after staff sent them to Snapchat.
A spokeswoman for Air New Zealand told News Corp the images were only brought to the airline’s attention “in the past 48 hours”. She said an investigation had “commenced immediately” when staff were alerted.
My guess is they sent them via Snapchat, assuming they’d never be seen again. Some friend (they should unfriend), screenshotted it and put it on a more permanent platform.
That friend sucks.
Yes, this was unprofessional. But being suspended for some only-slightly-racy photos seems a bit extreme to me–especially when they weren’t intending for them to be broadcast. But I can be persuaded–what do you think?
