Aeroflot Fires Stewardess for SSJ Crash Tweet

A stewardess from Russia’s largest airline, Aeroflot, was fired after leaving a derogatory comment on her Twitter page about the fatal crash of a Russian-made Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft in Indonesia on Wednesday, Forbes reported on Thursday.

Aeroflot owns six Sukhoi Superjet 100s similar to the one which slammed into a steep mountainside at Mount Salak, outside Jakarta, during a demonstration flight. All forty five people on board are feared dead, including eight Russians, one American, one French, two Italians and 33 Indonesians.

The flight attendant named Ekaterina Solovyova, 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.”

Other Twitter users took a screenshot and sent a complaint to Aeroflot. Solovyova removed her comments, and then deleted all the pages in social networks, but the airline sacked her.
