Apparently, this happened on KE86 JFK-ICN, and one executive, who also happened to be the daughter of the airline's chief executive, went nuts (pun not intended) the way macadamia nuts was served in F class.
As opposed to be served in ramekin, the nuts were served in paper bags, at which point the executive demanded the F/A who served the nuts to bring out service manual to refer the proper SOP, then ordered the plane to turn back and offload the F/A.
The whole incident caused the flight to be delayed by 11 minutes and has since drawn criticism against the executive for the way the situation was handled, as well as being investigated by South Korean government.

I first knew about the KE executive while reading an article on a high-rise building project underway now in Los Angeles. The construction is financed by Hanjin Group (parent company of Korean Air) where part of the building space will be reserved for hotel. Below is the link to the article. She was clearly mentioned alongside the airline chairman...

Given Heather Cho's character, believe she can become a strong CEO and should be recruited as MH CEO.

Korean Air ‘nut rage’ heiress resurfaces as Olympics VIP while her former target scrubs toilets


SEOUL — Cho Hyun-ah, the Korean Air heiress who achieved global notoriety in the 2014 “nut rage” incident, returned to the public eye last month, accompanying her father as he ran with the Olympic torch when the relay passed through Seoul. 
Korean Air is an official partner of the Winter Games, which open in PyeongChang on Friday, and Cho’s father is the chairman of the company — called “owner” in Korean because, although it is publicly listed, the company is in many ways still operated like a family business.
Running with her father and sister, Cho wore an official gray PyeongChang tracksuit and a smile. 
Park Chang-jin is also trying to put on a smile these days. He was the chief flight attendant on Korean Air Flight 86 from New York to Seoul the day of the fracas over nut service in the first-class cabin, and his life has not been the same since.
“I loved my job, but then suddenly this incident with Ms. Cho happened,” Park said in an interview in Seoul. “I lost everything at that moment because someone who had power over me had this emotional outburst.”

The invisible gap that exist between the "have" and the "have not"...on one hand a daughter of a rich and influential man who lived a lavish life and sat at the highest pedestal and the other son of a sailor who worked hard towards his dream job...in the end no matter whose fault it was the lower end suffers the most.
