Police investigate second angry daughter of Korean Air Lines chairman

Daughter of Korean Air Owner Returns Home Amid Power Abuse Allegations

The airline Korean Air has suspended one of its chairman's daughters from her marketing role after an alleged violent outburst at a business meeting, prompting public outrage and a police investigation.

Korean Air said Cho, a senior vice-president, was suspended from work starting on Monday. She is also the sister of Cho Hyun-ah, the former Korean Air executive who forced an worldwide flight to return to the gate after she heavily berated crew members for the way a bag of macadamia nuts were served.

Unions have urged Emily Cho to step down over her actions, which they said harmed the airline's reputations. Cho oversaw the company's marketing and commercials.

She is facing pressure to step down and has apologised for her "foolish behaviour".

Cho's sister, Hyun-ah, achieved worldwide notoriety after delaying a flight at John F Kennedy Airport over the way nuts were served.

If investigators determine that Cho Hyun-min threw the glass cup at the ad manager, it could be considered assault involving hazardous objects, Yonhap reported. Although Korean Air Lines is a listed company, Cho's older sister's anger over macadamia nuts being served in a bag, not on a plate, was powerful enough to force the taxiing flight to return to the gate.

"There is a huge chance that foreigners who read the news about the founding family's abuse of power would assume that it is part of South Korea's national image", the petition read.
