American Airlines Parody
March 16, 2012 by staff
American Airlines Parody, An American Airlines flight attendant from South Florida whose YouTube videos poked fun at his airline bosses said Thursday he plans on fighting his termination, NBC Miami reports.
Gailen David, a 24-year veteran of American Airlines who was based in Miami, appeared in drag as the “Aluminum Lady” in the series of videos that took aim at the airline’s financial difficulties. The popular videos have received tens of thousands of views.
David also runs a website, dearskysteward.com, where the videos along with articles about American Airlines gossip and airplane etiquette are posted.
American Airlines spokesman Bruce Hicks, in a statement released Wednesday explaining David’s firing, didn’t mention the videos but claimed David published the private details of American Airlines passengers and promoted American Airlines competitors on his website.
“Mr. David was counseled last year about the serious nature of both passenger privacy and conflict-of-interest violations. He has repeatedly failed to adhere to our policies,” Hicks said. “We take our passengers’ privacy seriously and will not allow employees to violate that trust.”
Reached by NBC 6 Miami on Thursday, David said he was “absolutely” fired because of the videos, which he claims his bosses at the airline demanded be taken down..
The videos kept getting watched and they couldn’t stop it, that’s what caused all the trouble,” David said. “They’re being very selective over what they chose to fire me for.”
An American Airlines flight attendant may be fired for videos mocking bosses. KXAS reporter Scott Gordon has the story.
David said the flight information he posted was from former and current American Airlines executives.
