March 11 , 2015
A flight attendant is suing the airline Korean Air and a former executive over the infamous “nut rage” episode.
Kim Do-hee’s lawyers in the US said that the airline executive, Heather Cho, physically and verbally attacked Kim for the manner in which she served nuts on board a plane that was taking off from JFK airport in New York on December 5.
Cho, who has been jailed for a year for obstructing flight safety, is the daughter of the Korean Air chairman and belongs to a prominent South Korean business family.
