'Nut rage': Three-year term for former Korean Air executive sought

  • Prosecutors in South Korea have recommended that Cho Hyun-ah, the former Korean Air executive who has been charged with endangering flight safety, be sentenced to three years in jail. According to media reports, Cho Hyun-ah, whose father is the chairman of the airlines, had reportedly misbehaved with airline staff after she was not served nuts in the manner she desired.

    The incident was later dubbed “nut rage”. She ordered a staff member off the flight following a confrontation, and the plane was forced to return to the John F Kennedy airport gate in New York, on December 5.
