Embattled Korean Air Lines Chairman Cho Yang-ho is now under fire for ordering what some have viewed as "excessive" disciplinary action against cabin crew over a customer's complaint.
The complaint involving a chicken curry dish served during a flight follows Chairman Cho's public apology for the latest "water rage" scandal involving one of his daughters Sunday, as he fired his two daughters Cho Hyun-ah and Cho Hyun-min from their senior executive posts for causing public uproar. Cho Hyun-min was previously involved in a "nut rage" scandal in 2014.
The "curry" scandal came to light as the passenger involved shared the incident on Blind, a site to post anonymously. The post started circulating online Thursday. The unidentified person criticised the flight attendant for "handing out a food tray with only rice and not the main dish (chicken curry)."
