Delta employee blogger now fired

The latest development in the story about Ellen Simonetti, suspended by her employer Delta Airlines for posting a photo on her Queen of the Sky personal blog – she has now been fired.

A BBC News report says that Ellen is initiating legal action against the airline for "wrongful termination". Delta has repeatedly declined to comment on what it calls "internal employee matters," and a Delta spokesperson reiterated this position on Wednesday, the BBC report said. The spokesperson did confirm that there were "very clear rules" attached to the unauthorized use of Delta branding, including uniforms.

This now has all the makings of a major public communication issue for Delta. In a post on her blog yesterday afternoon, Ellen says: "If you are a member of the press, please email me at [address] and I will forward you my PR firm’s contact info." She has a PR firm!

Observing developments with keen interest.

  2. Hi
    My name is Walter Lopez. I am going to be 17 years old in August 17. I am sending this letter because I want to tell you a question, How long does it take to become a commercial pilot? I am making that question because since I was 10 years old my biggest goal in life was to become a pilot. I live in San Bernardino, California and attend to San Gorgonio High School. I have good grade and my teachers always tells me that I am an excelent student because when its time to do work I do it and when its time to play around I could do it as well. In the year 2006, I will be graduating from high school and will go to a Univercity that I will be attending to become a Commercial Pilot.
    Thank you for you time and assistance,
