The local media reported that the captain tried picking up a glass of champagne from the welcome drinks tray before take-off on a flight from South Korea to Amsterdam in December 2018.


He was stopped by a member of cabin crew who said that he can’t drink alcohol.A cup of wine was refused to the pilot midway through the flight from a member of cabin crew.


After refusing the flight attendant reported the incident to the cabin crew manager.The incident was reported by the manager to the other crew and co-pilot but he instructed them not to mention anything to the captain until the plane lands mainly due to the concerns over his mental state.


There was an ‘altercation’  between the manager and co-pilot.The claims were investigated by Korean Air after the cabin crew manager filed a formal complaint regarding the incident.


The Korean Air spokesperson said that it was true that the captain had made a controversial action, but it didn’t cause real trouble.According to them the cabin crew manager used insulting words during the altercation and revealed the internal issue.
