Nut-rage airline exec released early by appeals court


Disgraced airline exec Heather Cho, daughter of Korean Air Lines Co.’s chairman, was set free for prison after a Seoul court ruled she'd “done enough reflection and needs a new chance after changing her disposition." Cho served five months of a one-year sentence for ordering a plane on the runway at JFK airport to return to the gate after a crew member served her macadamia nuts in a bag, rather than on a plate as is customary in the first class cabin.
