South Korean prosecutors seek 3 years prison for nut rage executive

SEOUL, South Korea – South Korean prosecutors are seeking a 3-year prison term for the former Korean Air executive infamous for an inflight tantrum over how she was served macadamia nuts.

Cho, the daughter of Korean Air’s chairman, has pleaded not guilty to charges of violating aviation safety law.

Cho ordered the chief flight attendant off a Dec. 5 flight after a confrontation with cabin crew, forcing the plane to return to the gate at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.
