Row over nuts prompts Korean Air resignation


Daughter of CEO steps down after she had chief purser kicked off the plane over manner some nuts were served.

A top executive in Korean Air’s in-flight service – a daughter of the company’s CEO – has resigned after being criticised for having the chief crew member kicked off a plane because of the way she had been served some nuts.

“I feel so sorry for our customers and South Koreans for causing such trouble… and seek forgiveness from the people who might have been hurt by me,” Cho Hyun-Ah, 40, said in a statement released by Korean Air on Tuesday.

“I will resign from all my posts at Korean Air to take responsibility for the incident.”

Korean Air CEO Cho Yang-Ho immediately accepted her resignation, according to the statement.

The Seoul flight had just left its gate at New York’s JFK airport on Friday when the incident occurred.
