Korean Air's vice-president has quit because of a bag of nuts. Cho Hyun-ah was flying first class. A flight attendant gave her a bag of nuts. She was angry because the nuts were not on a plate. The man had to kneel and apologise. Cho told him to leave the airplane. The plane went back to let him off. The flight was 20 minutes late.

This story is called "nut rage" in Korea. Ms Cho's actions nearly put 250 passengers in danger. Cho's father is the airline's CEO. He asked people to forgive his daughter. He said: "Everything is my fault." He said he didn't educate his daughter properly. He also said his daughter could not work for any of his companies.
