Who are these muppets that quit their job on a wing, a prayer and a promise?
Lemme see, interview, check, contract, yup maybe, workpermit, don't know, ah what the heck lets resign and move the wife and kids over there, all will be fine on the day.
cldrvr.....It is the responsibility of KAL to obtain all of the work permits, visas, etc. not the applicant. Someone dropped the ball big time. Whether it was intentional or not remains to be seen. And, as is the norm over there, they will figure out how to blame someone else. Never take responsibility for your screwups. This bleeds over into the cockpit. Dangerous. Expat captain on 747 was on rest break, two korean F/O's in cockpit. They fell asleep and went lost comm. He got blamed and a letter in his file. And the beat goes on.
