Daughter of Korean Air Owner Returns Home Amid Power Abuse Allegations

[THE INVESTOR]Korean Air on April 16 said it would take "appropriate action" after the police conclude an internal probe to decide whether they should open a full-fledged investigation. Cho is the sister of Cho Hyun-ah, who was jailed in 2014 in the so-called nut rage scandal after she ordered her flight back to an airport gate in NY because she was upset about the way her nuts were served on the plane.

Korean Air has suspended its CEO's younger daughter while police investigate reports she threw water at an advertising executive in a meeting.

Korean Air said Cho, a senior vice-president, was suspended from work starting on Monday.

On April 12, news reports said that she abused an ad agency employee. Cho oversaw Korean Air's marketing and commercials. "It is my big fault that I could not control my emotions".

Seaworld Entertainment Inc's (NYSE:SEAS) Sentiment is 1.33
The company owns and operates USA theme parks, including the popular SeaWorld (R), Busch Gardens (R) and Sesame Place (R) brands. It dropped, as 72 investors sold KMB shares while 404 reduced holdings. 99 funds opened positions while 344 raised stakes.

It was reported Thursday that Cho, who is in charge of the company's advertisement projects, allegedly yelled and threw water at a manager of an ad agency in a meeting last month, after losing her temper because she was unsatisfied with answers to her questions. Members of the founding families of giant business groups called chaebol, often including the second or third generations, are treated as "emperors".

She demanded the flight crew chief be expelled from the plane after she was served macadamia nuts in a bag, not a dish, and the plane had to go back to the gate.

More than 56,000 South Koreans have signed a petition submitted to the presidential office asking the government to stop Korean Air from using the word "Korea" in its name and stop using a logo resembling the national flag.

"It is a national disgrace that this family keeps making embarrassing troubles while doing business under the "Korea" brand", one petitioner wrote.
