South Korean Court Suspends Prison Term for Korean Air 'nut Rage' Executive

37 22.05.2015 Инфо

A South Korean court Friday suspended the prison term of the former Korean Air executive whose onboard "nut rage" delayed a flight last year, setting the stage for her release from prison.
Cho Hyun-ah, who is the daughter of the airline's chairman, did not violate aviation security law when she ordered the chief flight attendant off a Dec. 5 flight, forcing it to return to the gate at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, according to the Seoul High Court's ruling.
It said she was guilty of using violence against flight attendants.
Cho, head of the airline's cabin service at the time, had a heated, physical confrontation with members of the crew.
