Humiliate means to make someone feel ashamed or stupid, especially where other people are watching. There are feeling of shame and great embarrassment to look stupid or weak; a situation that makes one feel humiliated.

This is encapsulated in the situation of ex-staff of Nigeria Airways Ltd, the immensely loyal but long-suffering workers of the defunct national airline of Nigeria. This is actually in the African context where they experienced few air-mishaps.
