No Meals on Board while Asiana Chairman had hot meals offered?

From July 1 to July 2, mostly Asiana international flights had departed from Seoul's Incheon Airport to Japan and China without in-flight meals. However, Asiana Airlines offered hot in-flight meals for Park Sam-koo, the chairman of Kumho Asiana Group who was flying to China on July 1. Due to the time spent waiting for meals to arrive, most of Asiana flights were delayed in the two days.

In a radical turn of events, as the temporary supplier for Asiana's catering, the head of Sharp Do&Co Korea's subcontractor committed suicide after complaining of pressure for him to take responsibility for the debacle on July 2.

"I am sorry for causing public concern amid escalating controversy over operating passenger flights without meals," said Park Sam-koo, I feel greatly responsible for having caused such troubles to the customers and our employees by having failed to make due predictions and preparations."

The suicide sparked nationwide fury as many accused the airline of trying to shift responsibility for its mismanagement to a powerless subcontractor.
