Blog me, Fly me

Blog backfires for flight attendant | CNET News.com

"In the past, people expected flight attendants to be young and attractive," Simonetti, a 29-year old blonde, said from her home in Austin, Texas. "Maybe I represent the flight attendants of the past."

But it is Simonetti's very 21st-century activities that she says prompted Delta management to ground her, suspending her from flying in September and then firing her a month later.

Simonetti has operated a Web log since January, calling it Diary of a Flight Attendant, and said she did not hear from Delta about the site until after she posted a set of provocative photos of herself in her Delta uniform.
