Kuwait investigates pilot entertaining ex-porn star in cockpit
The model is the UK X Factor star Chloe Mafia who was ousted from the program in 2010 following drug and escort work allegations
Kuwait’s communication minister Issa AL Kandari has ordered an “urgent investigation” of reports that a Kuwait Airways pilot had entertained a porn star model and her friend inside the cockpit during a trans-Atlantic flight.
The model is the UK X Factor star Chloe Mafia, also known as Chloe Khan, who was ousted from the program in 2010 following drug and escort work allegations which she vehemently denied.
Minister Al Kandari said “If the reports and pictures are proven true, we will take action against the people involved and we will announce the conclusions to the people of Kuwait,” according to the official Kuwaiti news agency.
In a statement, Kuwait Airways said that it opened a “full investigation” about the incident which took place in 2013 during a flight from London to New York, but it became “aware of the incident on Sunday through the British media.”
According to Kuwaiti media outlets, authorities ordered the “immediate recall” of the Kuwaiti pilot from the Thai capital Bangkok where he was on Sunday flying as a “passenger, not as a captain, and he will be questioned as soon as he lands in Kuwait City”.
In a video of the incident seen by Al Arabiya News, Chloe was taking one selfie after another, which she published on her official social media account. On her official Facebook page, she provided her fans with some details of the cockpit incident, but gave a full account to the British Daily Star.
She said “We were sitting in business class about 30 minutes after take-off. The seatbelt signs had just gone off and a stewardess came and said the pilot wanted us to go to the cockpit. They locked the door and the captain introduced himself and said ‘Hi, I’m the naughty pilot. He said he lets sexy girls in the cockpit, even though he’s not supposed to, because he ‘made the rules’. Then he told the stewardess to get us a bottle of champagne, which me and my friend drank."
“He started smoking, which I thought was odd, but he said he was the pilot and could do what he wanted. I asked if it was safe as I was worried and he just said people were ‘too fussy’ about safety. I was stunned.”
Chloe added, “Pilots did not drink any of the alcohol but the captain smoked 40 cigarettes throughout the journey, sang The Lion King’s Hakuna Matata and Toni Braxton’s Un-break My Heart. He was showing us what each of the buttons did and said we could sit on his knee and wear his pilot’s cap and fly the plane.The co-pilot didn’t smoke or really say that much – he made a couple of jokes but thankfully he seemed more concerned with flying the plane.”
