A co-pilot’s sexual assault of a female flight attendant is stirring up controversy at Korean Air which was put in a hole by the nut rage of Cho Hyun-ah (former vice president of Korean Air).

The 3rd Criminal Investigation Department at the Incheon District Prosecutor's Office announced on April 25 that it arrested a Korean Air co-pilot on the charge of a sexual assault.

On January 26, the flight crew who left Incheon and arrived in Toronto, Canada, including the co-pilot and the female victim, returned to their hotels after having dinner together near their hotel.

During this process, the co-pilot broke into the victim’s hotel room with a spare key which the co-pilot took from the front office and attempted to rape the victim. But the pilot failed to ravish the female attendant as she escaped to the rest room.

After the incident, the female attendant promptly informed the company of the fact and demanded a disciplinary action against the pilot. On February 6, the co-pilot was fired by Korean Air.

“All Korean Air employees will make Korean Air, a company loved by customers and society.” Cho Won-tae, president of Korean Air pledged in his inaugural address earlier this year.
