Korean Air chair's daughters resign as smuggle probe widens

"We are deeply sorry for upsetting the public and Korean Air employees with my family's problems", Cho said in a statement. According to The Straits Times, in the process of kicking the crew member off the plan, Cho Hyun-ah also made a taxiing plane return to its gate, causing a flight delay in the process.

In the wake of "nut rage", Cho Hyun-ah was forced to resign and charged with obstructing aviation safety.

Following the incident, the 34-year-old issued a wide-ranging email apology to "everyone" she had worked with for her behaviour, although she has denied throwing water in anyone's face.

Police are investigating Cho Hyun-min, who was a senior vice president and marketing executive at the South Korean airline, after she allegedly threw water in a colleague's face. The chief of Hanjin Group and father of the two daughters whose behavior sent shock waves across the country, said he has named Seok Tae-soo, president of Hanjin KAL as the vice chairman of Korean Air.

Cho Hyun-min publicly apologized for the fracas on Facebook, saying her behavior was "foolish and reckless".

The incident was dubbed "nut rage", prompting the sister's case to be described as "water rage".

A Korean Air spokesman said the family is fully cooperating with the investigation.

The decision was specifically made to meet growing demands on Korean Air to have a professional CEO - not a member from the ownership family - lead, he added.

Protests have grown so heated, some people even petitioned the South Korean president's office to ban the airline from using "Korean" in its name, the New York Times reported.

In the latest instalment, police said Monday they were looking into whether the sisters' mother Lee Myung-hee had herself abused employees verbally and physically.

South Korean media reports have cited anonymous tips from airline employees that the Cho family smuggled foreign goods into South Korea by disguising them as corporate assets.

The chairman also pledged to strengthen the role of the boardroom and establish a compliance committee to "institutionally prevent" such incident from happening again. He also promised to increase the power of the company's board of directors.

"I am deeply sorry that problems connected to my family have anxious the people and employees of Korean Air", he said. "I apologize to everyone".
