Bizarre: China Eastern Fires Cabin Crew After Boyfriend Proposes During Flight

Last May (i.e. several months ago), a female China Eastern cabin crew member named Xiao Jiao was working a short, one-hour domestic flight from Xi’an to Yinchuan.

The cabin crew member’s boyfriend of four years was on board, and 30 minutes into the flight got down on one knee and proposed to her in front of the plane.

Well, Chinese media is reporting that China Eastern has recently fired the cabin crew member.


Cathay Pacific spells own name wrong on plane

An airline has had to send a plane back to the paint shop after the company’s name was spelled incorrectly on it.

Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific painted its name as “Cathay Paciic” on the side of the jet.

Eagle-eyed travellers spotted the mistake at Hong Kong International Airport and contacted the airline.
