• BANGKOK (AP) — A Cathay Pacific flight attendant is out of a job after writing on her Facebook page that she wanted to throw coffee in a passenger's face because she happened to be the daughter of someone she dislikes intensely: ousted Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

    The flight attendant caused a stir in the Thai online communities last week for posting hostile comments about Thaksin's youngest daughter, Paetongtarn Shinawatra. She also posted a picture of Paetongtarn's seating number on a Bangkok-to-Hong Kong flight she worked on Nov. 25.
