    London: A Russian air hostess has been sacked for posting a picture of herself giving passengers the finger - after it ended up on Twitter.

    Flight attendant Tatiana Kozlenko put a cheeky snap of herself giving the unknowing passengers the finger on her personal page on Vkontakte, one of Russia's most popular Facebook-style social networks.

    Within hours the snap had clocked up dozens of 'Likes'.

    But Tatiana came down to earth with a bump when the photo was posted on Twitter and retweeted by hundreds of fans, British tabloid The Sun reported on Tuesday.

    Russian Airlines Aeroflot - who announced the sacking on their Twitter account - said: "Posting this photo shows Tatiana's attitude towards passengers and her duties. She acknowledged her fault when she spoke to her managers."



    But furious Tatiana claims it isn't her arm in the snap - or even one of her airline's planes.

    Russian Airline Rehires Sacked Employee Following Public Sympathy

    http://www.idigitaltimes.com/articl...-rehires-sacked-employee-following-public.htm

    A Russian air hostess who was fired for posting a photo that showed a cabin crew giving passengers the middle finger has now been re-hired after the image went viral.

    Tatiana Kozlenko, an attendant with Aeroflot airline, was initially sacked for posting a picture on her personal Vkontakte page that showed a rude hand gesture. The photo caught Aeroflot boss' attention after people complained against Kozlenko once the picture went viral on Twitter.

    The airline company soon terminated Kozlenko from service saying that by posting the picture, Kozlenko has displayed her disregard for passenger and her duties.

    However, they seemed to have had a change of heart following a wave of public sympathy once the 25-year-old lost her job. The Russian airline company announced their decision to rehire Kozlenko and said that she would be on a six-month probationary period.

    On their decision to rehire Kozlenko, a spokesman for the Russian airline, Andrei Sogrin, told the Telegraph: "It turns out this girl was just in love with the skies. She bombarded us with requests to be returned to her job."
