Cho was allegedly so angered by the service that she forced the plane to return to the gate at JFK.

“My case illustrates how those who say no to economic power in South Korea come under a systematic attack from their organization,” Park said at a news conference last week, according to the The New York Times. “I hope my case will help our society to think about the dignity and rights of common workers.”

In the lawsuit, Park claims Cho forced flight attendants to apologize to her on their knees “like slaves in a medieval era,” used abusive language, and threw documents, The New York Times reported. Park's plans to sue were first reported in 2015.
