Korean Air chief apologises for daughter Heather Cho over nut scandal
SEOUL (REUTERS/KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – The chairman of Korean Air apologised on Friday for an incident involving his daughter who delayed a flight last week because she was unhappy about the way she was served nuts while seated in first class.
Cho Yang Ho said he would have Heather Cho removed from all posts at the company’s affiliates following her resignation as vice-president at the South Korean flag carrier where she was responsible for in-flight service.
“Regardless of the (ongoing) probe by the transport ministry and prosecutors, I will have Heather Cho step down from not only vice-president at Korean Air but all posts at affiliates,” Cho said at a news conference at the company’s headquarters.
The 65-year-old businessman asked for the public’s forgiveness for the “foolish” actions of his daughter, reported Korea Herald Friday.
“I am making my apology as a father and head of Korean Air,” he said at the airline’s headquarters in Seoul.
