'Nut rage' incident could result in sanctions against Korean Air
South Korea’s transport ministry has said Korean Air will face sanctions for pressuring employees to lie during a government investigation into the 'nut rage' fiasco that highlighted the tyrannical behaviour of a top Korean business family. The ministry said it would also evaluate if the airline's corporate culture posed safety risks after its chairman's daughter, Cho Hyun-ah, overruled the captain of a flight to force the plane back to the gate in the incident early this month. Cho, who was head of cabin service at Korean Air, ordered a senior flight attendant off a 5 December flight after she was served macadamia nuts in a bag, instead of on a plate, in what she thought was a breach of service protocol in first class.
