You see a headline about “Nut-Fueled Rage” and you think maybe you know what it’s about. But it’s not what you think.
It’s from South Korea. What a relief.
It’s an update about that Korean airline executive who threw an in-flight fit, actually turning the airliner around because her serving of macadamia nuts arrived in an unopened bag instead of a bowl. That was not first-class service, and she was flying first-class.
She was a vice-president of the airline.
Also — a little surprise here — the daughter of Korean Air‘s chairman.
And quite surprising, she has drawn a year in South Korean jail for the incident. She’s remorseful, but plans to appeal the sentence.
