Last year a Korean Air VP caused outrage by having a plane turn back when she got upset over how she was served macadamia nuts. If you haven’t read about the story, you can do so here.

The story got lots of media attention and led to her resigning, apologizing and eventually being sentenced to prison.

Check out some posts about the story:

Here is hopefully the last we hear of former Korean Air VP Cho.

According to the AP, “A South Korean court suspended the prison term” of former Korean Air VP Cho-Hyun-ah on Friday which immediately ended her time in jail.

The AP says that Cho did not violate any aviation security laws by having the plane turn back to kick the head flight attendant off on December 5.

Cho had been in prison since December and was sentenced by the upper court to 10 months in prison which was then suspended for two years.

The judges at the upper court said that Cho should be given a second chance, “citing ‘internal chance’ since she began serving her prison term as a reason for lessening the sentence“.

The fact that Cho is a mother of two-year old twins was also taken into consideration and never faced any criminal offense before.
