Now this is an example of what not to do as a flight attendant. Tatiana Kozlenko reportedly posted this picture of herself on Vkontakte flipping passengers the bird in an Aeroflot plane. After the picture was posted on the social network, it went viral on twitter and Tatiana was fired.


Tatiana claims it isn’t her finger in the picture.

But Aeroflot responded to the firing by saying on twitter ‘Posting this photo shows Tatiana’s attitude towards passengers and her duties. She acknowledged her fault when she spoke to her managers.’

This raises a few questions like do some flight attendants really hate passengers and do they belong in a service industry? And do all Russian flight attendants look like Tatiana?

At the very least this gives a whole new meaning to the word UP.

  1. “And do all Russian flight attendants look like Tatiana?”

    If so, I will switch my allegiance from Lufthansa to Aeroflot.

  2. @Mike, among Flights Attendants, yes. On all my recent flights I have been getting FAs old enough to be mom (or may be older than my mom).
