Korean Air is sentenced to pay nearly $18,000 to a flight attendant humiliated by an airline heiress when he served her macadamia nuts in a bag instead of a porcelain bowl.

Cho Hyun-ah flew into a “nut rage” on board, of 2014, on a flight, demanding that the plane return to the gate at JFK Airport to kick-off the flight attendant.

Before he was ejected, Park Chang-jin was forced to apologize for the heiress on his knees in front of the nutty mix-up.

A court in Seoul on Wednesday, he received compensation of 20 million South Korean won — about $18,000 for the way he was treated, according to the BBC.
