A former executive of South Korea's national airline has been imprisoned for one year for hindering aviation safety during a row over nuts.
Heather Cho Hyun-ah forced a plane to return to the gate in New York last December after she got angry at a steward because she did not like the way she had been served nuts. The nuts were served in a bag and not in a bowl.
She ordered the flight to abandon preparations for take-off and return to the terminal so that the chief steward could be removed.
Prosecutors had asked for a sentence of three years in prison on charges of breaking aviation law, assault and interfering in an investigation.
The Judge Oh Sung-woo said it was a case where "human dignity" had been "trampled upon".
Cho Hyun-ah has apologized and quit Korean Air, which is run by her father.
