(Scroll down for video) A female airline executive flew into a rage after a flight attendant served her nuts in a bag instead of placing the food on a dish.

40-year-old Heather Cho, the head of in-flight services at Korean Air, ordered the pilot back to the gate in order to kick off the flight crew.

Korean Air apologized for the incident, which unfolded in New York at the John F. Kennedy International Airport. Cho – the daughter of Yang-ho Cho, the president of the airline – will remain the vice president of the company.

She resigned as the head of in-flight services. The Airbus A380 jumbo jet was ready for takeoff to Incheon, Seoul, when the fight erupted.

Cho was sitting in first class when the flight attendant gave her macadamia nuts in a bag. Cho was outraged for not being served in a dish.

The flight arrived in Incheon, 11 minutes late. The Ministry of Transport in South Korea, said that it was investigating the incident.
