Tantrum air exec suspended
Korean Air Lines said Monday it has suspended one of its chairman’s daughters from her marketing work after she threw a tantrum at a business meeting, triggering public outrage and a police investigation.
The daughter, Cho Hyunmin, also known as Emily Cho, is the younger sister of another Korean Air execu- tive whose onboard “nut rage” outburst delayed a flight in 2014.
The flag carrier said Cho, a senior vice president, was suspended from work starting Monday. It said it will take further action following the police investigation.
Cho allegedly hurled a cup of water at an ad agency official during a meeting last month. She later apologized on Facebook, saying the outburst was sparked by her passion for commercials. Cho oversaw the company’s marketing and commercials.
Cho’s sister, Hyun-ah, achieved notoriety after delaying a flight at John F. Kennedy Airport over the way nuts were served.
