Korea Air Lines' infamous "nut rage" executive was sentenced to one year in prison on Thursday after being found guilty of obstructing aviation safety. In December, Heather Cho—the company's former vice president in charge of in-flight service—ordered a crew chief off a Seoul-bound flight because she and others in the first class cabin had been served macadamia nuts in a bag, not a dish.
