An inflight supervisor was fired after two flight attendants allegedly took a photograph of their colleague sleeping on a seat during their flight from Abu Dhabi to Johannesburg.
The photograph was then sent to the airline’s Human Resource Manager causing the supervisor to lose his job due to poor performance and breach of duties, according to Khajeej Times.
Soon after, the Arab man decided to file a complaint and sue the Australian and South African flight attendants for taking a photo without his consent and breaching his privacy.
Abu Dhabi Appeal court upheld an earlier ruling by the Court of First Instance where the two Flight Attendants had been found guilty and sentenced to 6 months in jail for infringing the privacy of their colleague.
While the women were still found guilty after appealing, their sentences were reduced to a suspended ones.
