A top executive of Korean Airlines today resigned amid mounting public criticism that she delayed a over how she was served macadamia nuts.

Company officials said today that Chairman Cho Yang-ho has accepted the resignation of Cho Hyun-ah, his eldest daughter and a vice president.

The junior Cho was under public fire following media revelations that a recent Korean Airlines flight from New York to South Korea returned to the gate because she ordered a senior crew member off the plane. Cho was angered that she was served bagged macadamia nuts instead of nuts on a plate.

The airline had apologised for inconveniencing the passengers. But it also said it was “natural” for Cho to fault crew’s ignorance of procedures.
