What’s the problem?

February 2, 2018 – Chang filed the lawsuit in 2015, initially seeking about 2 million won in damages, according to the Korea Herald [1].

Plaintiff alleges that the flight wasn’t adequately stocked with emergency supplies such as burn gauze, so she could only use ointment, a bag of ice, and Tylenol tablets until the plane reached its destination.

She also claimed that it would be difficult to ever fully recover, even if she underwent skin graft surgeries for the next decade, and that the burns on her genitals made it difficult for her to continue with her normal life due to potential problems with pregnancy and delivery.

The airline claimed that Chang caused the accident by knocking over the tray on which the noodle soup was sitting, and that it provided her with adequate emergency treatment per the in-flight doctor’s instructions.

The Seoul Eastern District Court on Wednesday ruled in favor of Chang and ordered Asiana Airlines and the flight attendant named in the complaint to pay her a total of 109.6 million won in damages.
