Well, if that is the case, Emma, another blog article about women molestation is getting ready to be published soon. I have a story of another young lady who was molested by the airport police because she spoke with one of them in a wrong (?) way. RH also stayed at his position, while his assistant was fired. I was threatened with prison and my ambassador told me to go home, because "women prisons in UAE are terrible", as he said. EK staff in service delivery and EKAS are mostly women. So, it's another scandal approaching.

If someone knows the details, please send me a pm or e-mail.

Emma, apart from the video, taking a bottle of champagne from the aircraft is a sacking offence. The video should never have appeared on the Internet (or anywhere else) without the 'star's' consent but there is nothing unfortunate about it. You can't accidentally do that with a bottle of stolen champagne and from the video I'm pretty sure she knew she was being filmed.

Jebus, she's clearly not an FGfun... (F/C crew)

- Dom is F/C, Veuve & Moet in J/C with the odd Bollinger popping up on the network from time to time

Emma Royds, while I praise your genuine concern for a fellow staff / colleague, I have to disagree with you. It takes to two to tango, and nobody held a gun to this girl's head forcing her to steal a bottle, use it her nether-regions "whilst" being videotaped. She knew what was up.

I do agree that it's a shame that the individual that did the filming wasn't canned just as fast. Flew with a close friend of the individual a day ago, saying that Mr. Brazil took it upon himself to send/distribute the video on a WhatsApp group chat. As stated by previous posters, the guy is still with the company. Many of his close friends have advised him to consider walking off into the sunset and never returning to Dubai.

The girl was stupid, the cameraman was evil. If he has the nerve to stay after that I expect he will need to take his own food and drink to work for a long time. In sealed containers.

Kinda sad on the evils and abuse of modern technology. Miss the days when you grunt behind a bush, scare a few squirrels, shake a few leaves from trees and nobody finds out. Now you let out a fart, its recorded and sent on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook/YouTube et al before you know everbody is looking at you funny and you don't why.

It's funny people want privacy and consent in modern times, we lost that right when we bought smartphones, tablets and computers.

Give that girl a VC!

Not seen the clip but can imagine.

Once again another apparent over reaction
To crew trying to make what is a soul destroying job a little fun. Maybe they should just dock her pay the cost of the bubbles , 'don't do it again' and move on

Oh wait ... This is the fear and greed rule in progress - what was I thinking!

Wja ( and I had a great time at EK but remember how it - and most airlines work BT

Thank God no such 'camera' was around when I was flying otherwise there wouldn't be any crew left. However I knew a Purser who would hold dinner parties with joints of beef left over from First with the odd bottle of Charles Heidsieck floating around.

The issue I have is whilst she knew she probably was being videotaped, did she know that it would be circulated to the wider world? I can't see many of our female colleagues in the cabin willing to risk the embarrassment and humiliation plus potential dismissal, should such a video be circulated. It makes me believe that this video has been shared without her consent and especially so when you consider what is at stake for her personally.

Many 'interesting' things go on down route and some will be recorded on smart phones too but the evidence of the vast majority of such antics will, remain a secret to the individuals involved. If she was expecting the same confidentiality, then it is unfortunate that trust has been broken and very unfortunate that she to date has come off worse so far. They are both worthy of the same disciplinary measures.

A dismissible offence has taken place in relation to the bottle of VC being removed from the aircraft. Whilst I don't know who has taken the bottle of the aircraft, the difference between consumption of a stolen item and actually stealing the item is a fine line in my eyes. Both offences are as bad as each other and if the bottle of VC was of so much concern to EK, we would have seen both crew dismissed already, which is not the case.

The case continues.....

Emma I'm with you.

Big Geordie spot on. "The girl was stupid, the cameraman was evil".!

Her actions probably under the influence, his in the cold light of day. Get rid of him ASAP, any deferral of punishment would be inappropriate for a predatory act from somebody in a position of power over the misguided individual involved.

Sorry need to take a chill pill but these incidents really p1ss me off?

How about, don't get your bits out in front of a camera? (At least not with you face in it )

If you do, it's almost guaranteed at some point that pics/video will show up, somewhere. Ok she may have been off her t!ts but maybe more people today should try having some restraint to not let themselves get so f!&%d they don't even know which way is up. How many cases have we heard of people in relationships sending out similar videos after a nasty breakup? So pretty high chance the guy/girl you hook up with on a trip doesn't give two craps about sending your performance viral.... better safe than sorry save your show for your own room and not for Instagram..


Still think it's total bollocks one seems to have been punished and the other not.

Worthless thread without a link!

How about a link? This is a worthless thread without it.

It would have to be viewed outside the UAE of course!

What most of you are missing is what was said by both participants of the video in question.

The visual was accompanied by some language that got them in deep trouble. What they said was a dismissible offence, never mind the what they filmed...


I agree with BigGeordie - they were both stupid to video (and say) what they did. Simple.

At my age I don't have enough testosterone to have my prurient interested raised (ahem) by the video itself but now I am intrigued:

What could one say that would be worse than what is being shown?
