Two female flight attendants of a Vietnamese carrier engaged in a physical confrontation after their flight landed in Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday.

N.T.V.A. and D.K.H., who are employees of the Vietnam Air Services Company (VASCO), a subsidiary of national carrier Vietnam Airlines, attacked each other shortly after their flight OV8060 from the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho touched down at Tan Son Nhat International Airport.

A. was also the chief steward of the flight.

The fight broke out while the two stewardesses were on an apron bus heading to the airport terminal.

H. later reported the case to the police unit at Tan Son Nhat, stating that A. had hit and injured her.

Results of a health check showed that H. was dramatized and suffered soft tissue injuries.

The flight attendant also stated she had lost her handbag containing VND10 million (US$430.4) during the quarrel.

A representative from VASCO confirmed the incident to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Monday, adding that the airline is coordinating with relevant agencies to verify the cause of the fight.

In the meantime, both women are temporarily suspended from their duties, the representative continued.

The situation unfolded after the aircraft landed, thus flight safety and security were not affected, he added.

According to an airline expert, such violence would negatively impact the image of an entire carrier.

It is unacceptable for the two trained flight attendants to engage in the confrontation due to their personal conflict, the pundit asserted.
