Gailen David, American Airlines Flight Attendant Behind "Dear Sky Steward," Finally Fired (Updated)
Original post, 3/15:
The Aluminum Lady [is] the most dangerous woman in aviation. She's skillfully taken American Airlines, one of the most admired airlines, to its lowest point and the morale of its flight attendants and their fellow employees right along with it. From their Dallas/Ft. Worth Headquarters to the lavish American Airlines London Townhouse, this historical drama will keep you on the edge of your seat and bring tears to your eyes.
You were specifically asked who at American Airlines provided you with the travel itineraries of passengers, including current and former members of the American Airlines management team. You claimed that all of the 'moles' were anonymous, and the information was received from anonymous sources. You claimed you did not collect the information from SABRE yourself and you believe publicly posting a passenger's private itinerary for future travel as not being a problem. Your explanations were not plausible...
Furthermore, your actions as described above not only constitute conduct far below that which is expected of an American Airlines employee, but are also in violation of American Airlines Rules of Conduct 24 which states:
Consider the welfare of the company and your fellow employees. Perform no act that is detrimental to either.
Bruce Hicks, spokesman for American Airlines, told ABCNews.com he wanted to make it clear that David was not fired for the videos. He was fired, Hicks said, because of repeated violations of passenger privacy and conflicts of interest in the form of ads for other airlines on David's web site.He added David had also posted photos of passengers in the Admirals Club Lounge, the airline's frequent fliers club lounge, and passenger flight schedules on his web site. "We can't condone it in any way," he said.
