A Malaysia Airlines cabin crew member was on Thursday detained in France for questioning for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman passenger who expressed nervousness about flying with the disaster-prone carrier.
“The staff member in question was detained following allegations by a passenger travelling on flight MH20 from Kuala Lumpur to Paris on August 4 of inappropriate sexual behaviour by a member of the cabin crew,” Malaysia Airlines said in a statement.
“Malaysia Airlines expects and accepts nothing short of the highest standards of conduct from its crew and takes any such allegations very seriously,” it said. “We will naturally assist the French authorities as they conduct their investigation and would stress that the safety, comfort and well-being of our passengers is always our highest priority,” the airline said.
