Tantrum air exec sus­pended

New York Post - - NEWS -

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.
