    The former Korean Air executive who was at the centre of the so-called "nut rage" scandal will not serve any more time in jail. Cho Hyun-ah caused a flight to be delayed in 2014 when she had a tantrum about the way she was served macadamia nuts. South Korea’s Supreme Court found Cho Hyun-ah not guilty of the most serious charge of breaking aviation security law by changing a planned flight route - a charge that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years’ jail.
