Do you think CX should stop providing Apple Daily because of the alleged cockpit sex scandal?

    If you haven't heard about it, Apple Daily broke the news of an alleged cockpit sex scandal on CX yesterday. You can find more details of this story here: Rumor: An alleged CX FA gave the pilot a fellatio at the cockpit, possibly during the flight

    As a result, CX has decided to stop providing the Apple Daily on its flights. According to Apple Daily, CX said they did so to avoid discomfort and embarrassment of the cabin crew.

    No idea whether it is just for yesterday as the news appears on Apple Daily's front page. Most of today's newspapers in HK has had a follow up on the scandal. Does it mean CX should just stop providing newspapers? :eek:

    Do you think this is the right decision or think it is censorship/damage control/revenge?

    Sounds more like a revenge. I recall hearing a similar situation (about the National Post's unfavorable comments to Air Canada) and resulted a suspension of their newspaper on board AC flights

    But does anyone know if this is just a one-time thing because of their front page or they are going to suspend that for now?

    OK I got the answer from today's newspapers, seems like CX continues to stop providing ALL newspapers that have those pictures in it! :eek: So what kind of newspapers are left? Financial Times? :eek:

    Trying to bring the discussion in the right place.
    That's a good point. CX might want to provide some therapy sessions to their FAs and pilots as a result of this incident.

    Is it OK in HK for pilots and others do admit that they need (psychological) help? Or would accepting the therapy provided by the employer end their careers?
