  • A flight attendant has apparently lost her job after being proposed to while she was working.
  • Her former employer, China Eastern Airlines, said she abandoned her duties.
  • Apparently, by accepting the proposal, she jeopardised the security of passengers.
  • People online are divided about the issue.

Back in May, a video went viral of a flight attendant's boyfriend proposing to her on board a plane. Passengers caught the moment on their phones and seemed to be touched by the romantic gesture. But as it has transpired, everything didn't go to plan afterwards.

According to Channel 8 News, the flight attendant actually lost her job as a result.

The Channel reported that the flight attendant had been fired because while accepting her boyfriend's proposal, she neglected passenger safety.

China Eastern Airlines — the airline she worked for — said the proposal happened mid-flight, which meant there was a disturbance that was irresponsible and jeopardised the security of passengers.

Asia One reported that Chinese citizens have been divided over the issue, with some saying the airline's reaction was over-the-top and "heartless." Others apparently said they agreed with the decision, because you shouldn't deal with private affairs during working hours.

Flight attendants can have a tough time. They work long shifts at strange hours, and are subjected to all the negative impacts of being on planes a lot of the time, such as radiation. Also, studies have shown how sexual harassment is a big problem in the industry. As many as two thirds of flight attendants have experienced sexual harassment during their career.

Still, although the proposal may have brightened up this flight attendant's day, in the long run, it probably wasn't the best idea.
