Virgin cabin crew face sack over 'abusive message' on plane screens

Virgin Atlantic cabin crew are facing the sack after accidentally sending an alleged foul message to passengers' TV screens.

According to the Sun, flight staff on the plane from Florida to Glasgow had intended to wake sleeping colleagues by sending a private message to their screens.

However, rather than send it to their colleagues' screens, the message, believed to have read, 'Get up, you c***s', accidentally appeared on all premium economy monitors.

Passengers reportedly complained the whole way home and some are seeking refunds and compensation.

An insider told the paper: 'Something went wrong and the message was sent to the whole cabin. It looks like the two crew members will be sacked, as well as the flight manager.'

Virgin Atlantic is is said to be investigating the incident.

A company spokesman said: 'We take these matters extremely seriously and will take appropriate action as necessary.'
