Sydney, Aug 13 (ANI): A pilot and a flight stewardess were fired from Cathay Pacific after photos of them having oral sex in a cockpit were published online and in print.
The Hong Kong airline's CEO John Slosar revealed that the couple, who have not been identified, "are no longer employees of the company".
He insisted that the incident did not occur while a plane was in the air and confirmed that a report would be forwarded to Hong Kong's Civil Aviation Department.
"I find any behaviour that recklessly soils the reputation of our company or our team members as totally unacceptable," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Slosar as saying.
"That's why we moved as swiftly as we could to ascertain the facts of the case, and to take decisive action," he added.
However, according to reports, the pilot has rubbished the claims saying that he and the flight attendant are a couple and that the photos were hacked from his personal computer. (ANI)
