This attractive flight attendant has turned to selling gas bottles to make a living after losing her job to lockdown measures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Former cabin crew member Maurice Maureen Avila, who used to work for Philippine low-cost airline Cebu Pacific, also posted words of encouragement for anyone else who lost their job due to lockdown measures.

Avila said in a post for her 16,885 online followers that she initially felt a failure in life after losing her job.


She admitted that it took her over six weeks before fully accepting the situation and posting about it on social media.

Avila said she worked as a cabin crew member for three years before she was let go during lockdown.

The young Philippine woman admitted that she cried every day and was devastated for weeks, calling it a very painful experience.


However, she went on to remind others who have lost their job that they should not lose hope or feel ashamed.

She also told others who dream of working in the skies to continue with their goal and that they will soon get their “wings again”.

Far from giving up, Avila has now launched her first business with her boyfriend and the couple sell cylinders of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in their local area, according to reports.


Photos show Avila in her Cebu Pacific uniform before losing her job and afterwards in her new position, proudly promoting one of her gas cylinders.
