Virgin Atlantic crew discovers Facebook, forgets it's public
A few clever crew members of Virgin Atlantic wrote a series of messages on Thee Facebook (if this was the BBC we'd say "a popular social networking site") where they referred to passengers as "chavs" and mentioned cockroaches on the planes as well as engine problems. Presumably the cockroaches were the resilient black creepies and not another slur on the passengers.
Virgin Atlantic has promptly had the posts deleted and according to a company statement the thirteen crew members involved will be "leaving the company".
This seems an opportune time for a Bitterwallet PSA. Hello, the internet is public. We know you slag us off behind that upper class curtain but please have the presence of mind to keep it to intra-cabin twittering.
Thanks to Bitterwallet reader bedlam for the pic!!
