Quite an unbelievable story. I don't know if this exec is a perfectionist or nut job? Pardon the pun.
Korean Air CEO's daughter Cho Hyun-Ah goes nuts over nuts: flight delayed after macadamia brouhahaThe daughter of the CEO of Korean Air forced the chief flight attendant off a plane bound for Seoul from New York after she was incorrectly served some nuts - delaying the flight and triggering a government probe, officials say.
Cho Hyun-Ah, who is an executive vice-president of the family-run flag carrier, insisted that the chief flight attendant leave the plane just minutes before take-off on Friday, Korean Air said.
Ms Cho, also known by her English name Heather, had taken exception to the arrival of some macadamia nuts she had not asked for, and to the fact that they were served in a packet rather than a bowl.
