Cho Yang-Ho, the CEO of Korean Air has publicly apologized for his daughter's outburst on a Korean Air flight last week. His daughter, Cho Hyun-Ah apparently was displeased with the way some nuts were served to her on the flight, which led to her kicking the crew member on the head. She also deemed him incompetent and made the New York bound flight return to its gate, to remove the crew member. 

According to a Times of India report, the CEO apologized for his daughter's 'foolish act' and said he was ready to take responsibility for her spoilt upbringing. 

Cho Hyun-Ah, was seated in first class, and was apparently served her macadamia nuts in a packet rather than in a bowl. This upset her so much that she called the chief purser and ended up attacking him and then had him removed for not knowing the 'correct protocols' when it comes to serving food in a flight.

Her behaviour has drawn heavy criticism from South Korea, condemning her to be a 'spoilt brat', petty and arrogant. She will apparently be questioned by transport ministry officials on Friday.
