Korean air defends pilot who tried to drink alcohol during flight

Looks like this is the nail in the coffin for me flying KAL. Between the lackluster lounges and this incident where I suspect "honor culture" and saving face playing a part in what could compromise safety, I think KAL is perma-banned for my travels.

Heck, I booked *A out of LAX (at a greater point cost) just to be able to access a better lounge. No way I will put my safety on. the line.
Korean Air has defended a pilot who attempted to drink alcohol during a flight, saying his actions “didn’t cause real trouble”, while demoting the member of cabin crew who reported him.

The captain tried to pick up a glass of champagne from the welcome drinks tray before take-off on a flight from South Korea to Amsterdam in December 2018, according to local media reports.

A member of cabin crew stopped him, saying “you can’t drink alcohol”.
