Russian air hostess fired for tweeting 'Hahaha' about plane crash

Russian air hostess fired for tweeting 'Hahaha' about plane crash

We're always told to be careful about what we post about work on social media. Well, one Russian flight attendant has become another walking example of what not to do.

An air hostess for low-cost Russian carrier Aeroflot tweeted her joy when a Sukhoi Superjet 100 crashed south of Jakarta, Indonesia, killing 45 people (pictured above).

Ekaterina Solovyeva wrote on her Twitter page: "Huh? Did a SuperJet crash? Hahaha! This aircraft sucks, it's a pity it wasn't in Aeroflot, that would be one less."


The flight attendant quickly removed the comment, but users had already taken screen grabs and complained to the airline, which took no time to sack the stewardess.

The Russian-built 90-seat Superjet was being tested in a demonstration to aviation representatives.

It had previously performed without a hitch in earlier tests, and is said to be the worst demonstration accident in decades, Mail Online reports.

What a horrible person. It's not that she got caught, it's her actions that are deplorable.
Travel agents around the world dont call it "aeroflop" for nothing.... they have one of the worst safety records in the world.
super jet 100 is a good plain with latest technology ! but the problem is that russian pilots think that they are so good .. they do things that are just stupid ! they show off .. but the plain is good it self .
