Daughter of airline boss kicks flight attendant off plane for serving unwanted nuts............

Airline boss's daughter has air steward kicked off flight because she doesn't like nuts
Cho Hyun-Ah, daughter of Korean Air CEO and executive vice president of the family-run firm, reportedly became enraged after receiving the unwanted nuts

Many people are dangerously allergic to nuts, however some people just really don’t like them.
One such person is the daughter of Korean Air’s chief executive who kicked a flight attendant off a plane recently after being given some nuts she didn’t ask for.
Cho Hyun-ah insisted the flight attendant was incapable of keeping passengers safe, and told the pilot that the man had to be put off the flight to Seoul before it left New York on Friday.
The plane was already taxiing towards the runway, but had to return to the terminal at JFK airport. Her actions caused an 11-minute delay in arrival for the 250 passengers.

Cho, who also goes by her English name Heather, is the eldest daughter of Korean Air’s chief executive Cho Yang-ho, and an executive vice president of the family-run carrier.
The South Korean government has said it will examine the incident for any breach of aviation regulations.
An unnamed transport ministry official said the action had been ‘totally inappropriate’.
Seoul’s main opposition party said: ‘Why did she have to make all that fuss because of some stupid macadamia nuts? She soiled the reputation of our flag carrier.’
