Korean Air CEO's daughter suspended 'for throwing water'

Daughter of Korean Air Owner Returns Home Amid Power Abuse Allegations Heiress apologises for throwing water at man after sister said sorry for nut rage

A legal battle lies ahead for Korean Air Senior Vice President Cho Hyun-min, who appointed an attorney Monday and said that she had actually "pushed" - not thrown - a cup of water toward an advertising agency manager during a meeting last month.

Cho is the youngest daughter of Korean Air Lines CEO Cho Yang-ho, who is also a chairman of Hanjin Group.

The police investigation will determine whether Cho threw the water on the floor, as Korean Air maintains, or toward the ad agency official's face, as some media report, which could constitute physical assault. A Jin Air official said she stepped down from the post in 2016 over concerns it could create controversy.

The 2014 "nut rage" incident saw Cho Hyun-ah, then the firm's vice president, forcing two flight attendants to kneel and beg for forgiveness on a Seoul-bound flight from NY before ejecting one of them out of the plane before takeoff.

Unions have urged Emily Cho to step down over her actions, which they said harmed the airline's reputations.

Cho apologised to employees in an email on Sunday. One calling for the word "Korean" to be removed from the airline's name has gathered more than 50,000 signatures. Lawmakers like Choo Mi-ae, chairwoman of the ruling Democratic Party, also supported the public petition, arguing that the title can disgrace the country's image.

On tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw , during the Superstar Shake-up, Dolph Ziggler made his return to the red brand. McIntyre hasn't wrestled since losing the NXT title to Andrade "Cien" Almas at NXT TakeOver: WarGames in November.

Korean Air's employee union and two unions of pilots said in a joint statement Sunday that Cho's actions harmed the reputation of Korean Air, demanding her to step down and offer a honest apology to all employees and the public.

According to industry sources Monday, a Korean aviation law does not allow a foreigner to be listed on the board of directors of a Korean airline. She later apologized on Facebook, saying the outburst was sparked by her passion for commercials.

According to Korean Air, the company has appointed lawyer Kim Sang-hyuk from the law firm Sejong to "cooperate with the police probe that is now under way".

A Korean Air labour union expressed "indescribable regret" over Cho's behaviour.

The labor unions of Korean Air issued a joint statement Sunday pressuring Cho to resign immediately and make a public apology.
