Not sure about the Air NZ B777 video you are on about. I know of a B767 one into Samoa...?

Oops, you're right - I'd got 777 in my brain but yes, I meant the 767 into Samoa.

Aviation culture in the Far East is idiosyncratic,none more so than the Korean one.The whole way they behave,feel and think is consumed by their overriding resentment of the presence of foreigners.Like Japan it is extremely xenophobic.
If you're thick-skinned and skilled in diplomacy,a good pilot might last 2-3 years there before tearing his hair out.

You guys are right on the dot. I just started here and after 2 months my class already lost 4 pilots. All from major airlines around the globe with more than 25 years experience and a fat logbook. The Korean check pilots just(LCPs) say that they don't know how to fly and some even doubt the pilot's background. Looks like I won't be here for long .

I had second thoughts when I interivewed back in November with KAL. I was not at all impressed with their ancient customs being brought into a modern cockpit. That's why I am staying where I am for the time being.
