Korean “Nut rage” Executive Sentenced To One Year In Prison

Remember the infamous Korean Air Executive who flew off her handle aboard a flight and directed her rage at a steward because she was served a bag of the wrong brand of nuts she didn’t ask for?

Heather Cho, daughter of Cho Yang Ho, the owner of Korean air, forced a plane to return to the airport and demanded that the steward be kicked off the plane because of the way she’d been served her nuts.

Although Heather Cho tendered an apology and was scolded by her father, she has been sentenced to a year in prison for breaking aviation safety rules.

In delivering judgment, the judge said Cho acted “as if it was her own private plane” and further added “It is doubtful that the way the nuts were served was so wrong”.
