Airplane Safety for Korean Air – level 3

10-01-2017 15:00

During a recent Korean Air flight, a passenger attacked others. American singer Richard Marx was on that flight and reported that he had to step in to deal with the passenger because he felt that the staff was “unprepared and clueless”.

Korean Air received criticism for the on-board incident and now its staff will have more ability to use stun guns. Before the staff was only allowed to use stun guns if a crew member or a passenger’s life was in jeopardy.

The Korean Air president said that the company will improve the procedures for taser guns and ropes or shackles. These measures should reduce the number of attacks and secure the safety of the flights.

Difficult words: clueless (having little idea on what to do), jeopardy (danger), procedures (instructions or directions), shackles (two rings which you put on a criminal’s hands).
