Unruly passengers, behave! Korean Air will allow its flight attendants to use stun guns after an incident last week when one passenger attacked a couple of personnel and travelers until US Singer Richard Marx jumped to stop the event.
In a report by Korean Times, the airlines will beef up its crew members and re-train them to prepare for similar episodes that will happen shortly. Korean Air would, therefore "loosen up" and Taser rowdy sitters that disrupt the ride and safety of other individuals on board.
A Korean Air spokesperson spoke to CNN that the male to female proportion of flight staff would be reviewed. Dominantly attended by female personnel, the male crew should also be around to look after guests. Passengers who cause trouble will be forbidden to fly the airlines for some time.
The airlines' operations were only assessed right now when Marx criticized the company for not knowing to handle the "chaotic and dangerous event." "My wife and I are safe, but one crew member and two passengers were injured," Marx took to Facebook. "The all-female crew was clueless and not trained as to how to restrain this psycho, and he was only initially subdued when I and a couple other male passengers intervened," he said.
Korean Air explained that the crew members cautious to use the guns because according to the rules, they are only permitted for use during "grave" situations which risk the life of a passenger or personnel or the safety of flight.
"Heading home to Los Angeles soon but Korean Air should be sanctioned for not knowing how to handle a situation like this without passenger interference," said Marx.
"We have decided to improve our conditions and procedure on using Taser guns to cope with violent acts and disturbances on board in a fast and efficient manner," it said in a statement to CNN.
