A fight attendant is out of a job after her boyfriend proposed to her on a packed plane.
The crew member, who works for China Eastern Airlines received a termination notice last week following the public declaration of love in May.
On September 10, China’s Channel 8 reported that the unnamed female flight attendant received a dismissal letter from the carrier in the mail.
According to Asia One, roughly 30 minutes after takeoff, the woman’s boyfriend got down on one knee at the front of the aircraft and popped the question.
Accepting the offer, the two shared a sweet embrace and the passengers applauded, in video footage that has since gone viral on YouTube.
According to Asia One, she said at the time: “I really didn’t know my boyfriend will be proposing to me on this flight, thanks for being my witnesses.”
Now, her employment with China Eastern Airlines has been terminated over concerns that she “neglected passenger safety”.
According to Channel 8, the airline’s letter detailed that the “private romantic behaviour caused turmoil among passengers” and was “extremely irresponsible for the safety of passengers”.
The news has drawn mixed reactions among social media users in China.
Some say that her firing was “inhuman” while others argue that handling “private affairs” during professional hours is wrong.
