Cathy Pacific scandal delays “feel good” ad campaign

Cathay Pacific airline scandalCathay Pacific Airways may delay a global marketing campaign after photos of crew members allegedly engaging in a sexual act on flight were published.

It’s reported that the photos were taken in an airplane cockpit, with the alleged pilot and flight attendant in uniforms. Cathay Pacific couldn’t deny that, but said there’s no evidence to suggest that the incidents happened on any flights while airborne.

The two personnel has “resigned” following the scandal, but they may face civil charges if they are found to be endangering the safety of passengers with their act.

The Hong Kong airliner was supposed to launch the ad campaign in September with the tagline “meet the team who go the extra mile to make you feel special.” The timing couldn’t be much perfect. I guess they have no choice but to change their plan.

    i don’t think it happened airborne. they are other pilots in the cockpit too, its hard to imagine everyone of them would allow that to happen.

      It’s a weird world these days. I’m not sure how their routine works, but the crew members won’t have much time to be in a cockpit (especially for a huge airliner like Cathay) except during scheduled flights.

      The fact that the pics were leaked (from the pilot’s PC) without the duo’s consent (as claimed) means that there were colleagues who knew that this was happening (and allowed that) but decided to hit them from the back instead of handling the matter with formal protocol.
