Photography rules on Korean Air
Are there any specific photography rules on KE? I was flying CDG ICN in Business class on the A380 and taking pictures of the economy cabin from the rear of the lower deck. A cabin crew came rushing out of nowhere and started asking me whether I took pictures, to which I replied “yes of course is that a problem?”. Without further explanation she requested to see the pictures I had taken with my cellphone (I didn’t know people can actually ask for that?) which I did while asking what the issue was (no reply). After a few seconds she said “ah it’s OK” and left. No further explanation, no apologies for the rude (or stressed out) tone of voice.. The cabin manager came during that time and was standing nearby not saying anything and just left without saying a word. I’ve been flying countless times for over 10 years with Korean Air and have never experienced any such situation before when they usually have a great service… This just felt really rude and a bit strange that the staff couldn’t just have a polite and simple discussion with me to explain what the issue was, so I’m just wondering if there’s any rule to your knowledge for photography onboard?
Sometimes crew don’t want to be in pictures, that’s the only thing I can think of. She probably could have handled it better but I’m guessing she saw there were no specific people being targeted and it was OK.
