An EVA Airways flight attendant yesterday apologized for making remarks about tampering with a pilot’s in-flight meal after the pilot purportedly criticized the Taoyuan Flight Attendants’ Union for launching a strike.
In a statement posted on the union’s Facebook page early yesterday morning, the flight attendant, surnamed Kuo (郭), admitted to saying in a Line messaging app group chat that she would add “extras” into a pilot’s food.
Screenshots of the conversation have been circulating online for several days, and the union initially suggested that they could have been fabricated.
They show Kuo — who is a member of the union’s board — sharing a picture of an EVA pilot and a Facebook post criticizing the union that she claimed he wrote, accompanied by her writing: “This man is going to get extras in his entree.” [FULL STORY]
