Air Canada Employee Deletes Passenger's Pictures.

Fri Dec 06, 2013 2:51 am

A man about to catch a flight at Newark Liberty International Airport took a photo of an Air Canada kiosk and was quickly confronted by an employee who ended up deleting about a dozen photos this morning.

A detailed write up is on this blog.

(while it could be argued this should be in the aviation photography forum, the fact that it also deals with airport staff makes it relevant here)

If the story is completely true, he should definitely report her to the airline. It was way out of line for her to scroll through his pictures and delete things.

It made for an interesting read, and I do hope appropriate actions are taken against whoever is truly at fault here.

This reminds me of something that happened last year.

A passenger had left a camera on board and and after we departed we got a datalink from operations asking if it was on board. A flight attendant from the inbound flight found it and placed it in a locker to give to the groomers (who take it to lost and found), but she forgot about it.

After we looked at it, and determined it was a functioning camera, (corporate security agreed), we looked at the pictures. Clearly this guy was an aviation enthusiast as everything was aviation related.

So ... all the way to TLV and back we filled his camera with pictures. Cockpit, cabin, ramp, sunset, landing, take-off ... you name it. Even a cockpit video during take-off from TLV, taken by the RP on the jump seat. We only stopped when the battery started to fail .. but the card was full any way!

He wrote back to us (through Operations) thanking us.

You see ... we aren't all bad!
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

I don't see what all the fuss is about with AC cabin crew. I secretly wish I could have been one myself  
LAX772LR - "Answer to goofy question:" in response to my question about the B737-MAX8 being grounded. 48 hours later all B737-MAX8 grounded worldwide. Go figure!!
