If she posted this on her own facebook page how did these online communities get a hold of it? I mean I obviously realize that anything you throw out on facebook, twitter and any type of social media then open you up to this sort of thing, but my fb page is set on very private settings so only my friends see what I post...unless a friend of hers then re-posted onto other Thai websites, which would be a damn shame.
Either way, a pity this had to happen but unfortunately a reality that Cathay had to let her go.

Many people on FB are not smart enough to set their privacy settings as such.

Quoting bjorn14 (Reply 1): Was Ms.Thaksin being targeted for her politics or acting like an entitled princess?
The FA definitely knew who the passenger was, having written on her Face Book page "I immediately told my flight manager I could not work knowing the daughter of my enemy was on the plane.'' She continued, "I called my personal adviser asking if it would be all right to throw coffee at Paetongtarn, but was told that this could breach Hong Kong's laws.'' Really? Good to know.
But she was also accused of posting not just the number of the seat in which Paetongtarn Shinawatra was sitting but an image of the passenger manifest. This is clearly unacceptable and worse then simply giving vent to an urge to chuck coffee at someone. I bet there are a few FAs who have felt the same at some time but at least they haven't been so crass as to publish confidential information on their FB page.

I cannot believe the degree of stupidity of this FA. Either she was willing/needed to be fired, or her mind needs some medication. Since I assume CX has pretty high sychological tests for their candidates I have to assume she wanted out. If not, then the series of books called "The Idiot´s guide to..." needs to produce one for Facebook ASAP. "The Idiot´s Guide to Facebook." i would call it.

Extremely poor judgement. When you are on the clock in a customer-facing role, you put you opinions in your back pocket. If it is impossible to contain yourself in a non-abusive situation, you are choosing to risk your employment. That simple. Choice then consequences.

BTW, did you see the top Reddit a day or two ago by what is almost certainly an EK FA? You can ask her any question she says. I'm wondering if her comments are real. She basically said she hooked up on nearly every trip. Seemed fake to me.
