Airline probes cockpit sex pics

2011-08-07 08:59

Hong Kong - Cathay Pacific said on Sunday it had launched a "full investigation" into photos allegedly showing a flight attendant performing oral sex on a pilot aboard an aircraft of the Hong Kong carrier.

Several pixelated photos of the act have been published in local Chinese-language media, showing the woman in a red outfit resembling Cathay's cabin crew uniform giving oral sex to a man who the reports said was a pilot.

"We are conducting a full investigation into the matter and there are some indications that the female shown in the photos may be a member of our cabin crew," a Cathay spokesperson said in a statement to AFP.

"Our investigations are continuing and we have nothing further to add at this stage," she said, without commenting on the identity of the man, whose clothing in the published photo did not appear to be Cathay pilot uniform.

"There is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that the act took place inflight, and there are no reasons to believe that any safety breaches have occurred," the spokesperson added.

Inside the cockpit

A spokesperson for the firm was quoted as saying in separate comments to the South China Morning Post newspaper: "One of the photos appears to have been taken inside an aircraft cockpit. There is no way to tell conclusively whether the photo was taken while the aircraft was on the ground or airborne."

Reports in Hong Kong media said the pictures had been widely circulated on an online forum for pilots, and added that the duo in the photos were a couple.

According to the Chinese-language Apple Daily, the pilot - a foreigner - has issued a legal letter to the newspaper saying the photos had been stolen from his personal computer and that he had lodged a police report.

Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong's top airline, has 13 000 staff around the world, including more than 8 000 cabin crew and 4 000 working in airports, according to its website.

      She was testing the "Joystick"

      umlaut - 2011-08-07 12:31

      DerpyHooves - 2011-08-07 12:35

      Bwahaha, the only reason I check out the comments section are for the puns. This website should be called puns24. BTW has someone made a cockpit joke yet?

      amos - 2011-08-07 13:16

      Creeky - 2011-08-07 17:55

      Her mouth was used as the Cock "PIT"...

      Creeky - 2011-08-07 17:59

      "This is your Captain "COMING"... sorry...sorry... I meant SPEAKING........."

      s r - 2011-09-16 10:44

      semen-gly anything's possible...

  • patrickb - 2011-08-07 09:12

    Maybe the food on the aircraft was not to the flight attendants liking!

      Yoni - 2011-08-07 13:06

      Forget the food China, I think they need a squeegee to clean the INSIDE of that windscreen...

  • Ixian - 2011-08-07 09:19

    She forgot her protein-shake at home.

  • Reader - 2011-08-07 09:21

    At least she found the right part of the "cockpit"

      Yoni - 2011-08-07 12:08

      She was only trying to execute a handbrake turn...

  • Captainmorgan - 2011-08-07 09:26

    She had a firm grip on the JOYSTICK

      Agent Bastad - 2011-08-07 10:37

      Nice try, but it's not called a joystick, it's called a yoke. A joystick is used for playing Flight Simulator.

      Epicurius - 2011-08-07 10:43

      @ Agent Bastad - Nice Try - Could have been an Airbus, they don't have conventional yokes but rather sidesticks which are effectively a joystick, so there was some merit in CaptainMorgan's comment.

      Lucky Strike - 2011-08-07 14:12

      You guys must be youngsters. In my days, planes had joysticks!!

      Bontage - 2011-08-07 23:26

      Whatever the hell it was, she knew how to handle it.

  • Jasber - 2011-08-07 09:52

    Sounds like a real joy ride - cocky son of a gun - hope the co-pilot got some

      umlaut - 2011-08-07 11:42

      Now we know why.

  • Reaperman - 2011-08-07 10:01

    What did this pilot, JFK and Bill Clinton have in common?....... they all had their heads blown off :)

      Mtondo - 2011-08-07 12:11

      Heard about Monica Lewinsky's book she wrote after the the "episode"? How to succeed in the White house.

      Captainmorgan - 2011-08-07 15:06

      Mtondo that is classic !!!! LOL

  • kwabeni - 2011-08-07 10:07

    Were they coming or going??

      Captainmorgan - 2011-08-07 15:07

      He was coming she was blowing

  • JohannV - 2011-08-07 10:11

    I thought "special services" were reserved for First Class?

  • Reg - 2011-08-07 10:12

    Lucky only the hostess went down. It could have been the whole plane!!

      Captainmorgan - 2011-08-07 15:09

      Should put that hostess on the Oz flight , she enjoys working down-under

  • kwabeni - 2011-08-07 10:15

  • douglas.barnes2 - 2011-08-07 10:17

    they did a cockpit in the cockpit.Should try maybe it will give you a high or a lift

  • neuroman - 2011-08-07 10:20

    That's why it's called a 'cockpit' silly :-)

  • Anton - 2011-08-07 10:23

    Johhhhh. how could I have been so stupid...... I thought we had hit some turbulance !!!

  • Eidel - 2011-08-07 10:32

    Who was the photographer?

      umlaut - 2011-08-07 11:48

      Imagine the SOUNDS on the flight recorder. If the plane went down because of this they could only conclude that it was a cock-up.

      Creeky - 2011-08-07 17:58

      "This is your Captain COMING......... Sorry meant Speaking"

  • Aabels - 2011-08-07 10:49

  • pugwash - 2011-08-07 12:08

    So thats why its called a cockpit . . . !

  • liesl.hutchings - 2011-08-07 12:10

    Let's hope Auto pilot was on!

  • umlaut - 2011-08-07 12:14

    ""There is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that the act took place inflight,"--NO the pilot definately didn't try to flee---he was sitting perfectly still.

  • 1eye - 2011-08-07 12:28

    Damn get reporting right, headline should be ORAL sex picture

  • Allin - 2011-08-07 13:08

    "Airline probes cockpit sex pics"? Sorry guys, the captain is well ahead (pun intended) - he's done some "probing" already!

  • MnrFotograaf - 2011-08-07 13:40

    Service on this airline will BLOW YOU AWAY

  • Gen - 2011-08-07 14:50

    Gives new meaning to "cockpit".

  • kimsha - 2011-08-07 15:16

    Why do you think it's called a cockpit?

  • Jo - 2011-08-07 15:29

    you know the most dangerous thing in a cockpit used to be a Pilot with a leatherman, now it is a hostess with a chipped tooth.

  • expatsa - 2011-08-07 16:08

    Yummie....I'm flying Cathay Pacific....resrvation confirmed!!!

  • cdwilson3 - 2011-08-07 17:29

    And we worry about pilots being drunk while flying. Its a hard story to swallow though. Wonder what the requirements are for being a hostess with the airline, it does put a new view on the kiss of life.

      NotnaJ - 2011-08-07 19:26

      is that why they are called "hostesses"?

  • NotnaJ - 2011-08-07 19:24

    Sounds like a real cockup...

  • LittleBootsy - 2011-08-07 20:11

    She should rather fly thai.....i mean suck thai

  • EXQSME - 2011-08-07 21:03

    "Cockpit"

  • Kurt - 2011-08-07 21:07

    Imagine the turbulence...

  • Jou - 2011-08-07 21:09

    thats going to be hard to swallow!!

  • Monica - 2011-08-07 22:19

    Maybe it was part of her job to get the flight!

  • Crime Buster - 2011-08-31 06:50

    Cockpit is not the politically correct term when the crew is all female - it is then referred to as a "Box Office" .....

  • DevBoy - 2011-09-16 09:54

    Passenger : How long till we land ? Pilot : Almost there, almost there , almost there ...

  • Keith3663 - 2011-09-16 10:23

    Whose your pilot, whose your pilot ....
