Virgin Australia Flight Attendant Gives Emotional Speech On Final Flight To Encourage Togetherness

Australia Flight : A New Zealand-based cabin supervisor has given an emotional speech while signing out on what would turn out to be her final flight.

Cassy Appleton uploaded the clip to Facebook after Virgin Australia announced the closure of all New Zealand bases as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, with 8,000 employees left out of work.

Although Cassy made the speech in the knowledge that it would be her last flight for ‘the foreseeable future’, she had not been aware it would be her final on-board announcement.

Today I lost my wings 😭 Today we received confirmation that Virgin are shutting down our NZ bases. Emotions are undescribable. This was my final announcement the other day. My final flight. ✈️👩‍✈️(Sorry she's a bit long)Having this opportunity was the best thing that happened to my life and to say I'm beyond grateful is an understatement. My heart is breaking for us all today 💔💔💔I've achieved soo much in this role, from traveling to buying a new car, from fixing my teeth to becoming debt free, from donating 4000 bras to Fijian women to living my most charitable years. Whilst I'm hurting for my loss I'm also counting my lucky stars to have been so blessed with this incredible opportunity. Signing off one last time✌️❤️💛One door closes another one opens!!Aroha Mai, Aroha Atu xxxEDIT:This has reached so many far and wide. Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful messages of support and love. It's people like you who will help us get through this difficult time. Kia Kaha World 💛#unitedbywingsP.S sing out if you have a job for me 😅🙏

Virgin Australia tweeted the vid through its official account, echoing the sentiments made by Cassy:

On March 25, Virgin Australia confirmed it would be cutting its domestic fleet to 90%, with budget carrier Tigerair Australia grounding all domestic services with immediate effect.

The airline also said 8,000 jobs would be suspended, a figure representing approximately 80% of its workforce. This decision was made in light of the latest travel advice from federal and state governments.
