Sex Scandalized Airline Cancels Ill-Timed Ad Campaign

Hong Kong-basd airline Cathay Pacific on Friday said that two of its employees who were "shown in compromising situations" — read: having fun with a camera in the cockpit — were "no longer employees of the company." Well, fair enough. If you take oral sex pics in your place of work and they somehow leak (not judging!), you sort of deserve to be let go if you're in the service industry. But Cathay Pacific didn't stop there. As part of the airline's attempt to clean up its stained image, an advertisement campaign called "People and Service" was cancelled yesterday. What's so bad about that? Oh, the slogan, which claims that Cathay Pacific is "the team who go the extra mile to make you feel special." Yeah, good call canceling that one.
