    It was the Purser she had removed.  Serving nuts in a bag?  The purser should consider herself lucky that Miss High Importance didn't order her executed.

    Cronyism?
     
    "According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, Cho is the eldest daughter of Korean Air's chairman, Cho Yang-ho."

    Quite common in some airlines, actually, especially those closely held by a family.

    One of the VP's I worked with at TAM was also the daughter of the Chairman.

    Wait, What? Korean Air serves macadamia nuts in premium cabins? While all we get are almonds, almonds and more almonds with a few broken cashews and pecans (plus the random stray pistachio that manages to get by the inspectors)? I want macadamia nuts.

    Seoul, South Korea (CNN)Planning to throw a tantrum on a plane?

    Don't do it in South Korea. (Well, anywhere.)

    The South Korean government has announced it's increasing punishments for unruly air passengers.

    The move follows a 2014 air rage incident in which a former aviation executive threw a fit over how her macadamias were served while flying first class.

    Those who harass or interrupt a pilot and crew members during a flight will face up to five years in prison or a fine of up to $41,300, up from the previous penalty of $4,130.

    Drunken passengers who disturb or abuse others could be fined $8,260, double the previous amount.

    According to the new regulations, captain and crew members who fail to report violators to police after landing could face up to $8,260 in fines.
