National carrier Vietnam Airlines last weekend returned diamond jewelry and expensive fashion items to a Cambodian passenger after she had left them on their plane at an airport in China earlier this month, according to local media.
A Vietnam Airlines flight attendant gave a bag containing diamond jewelry, a Rolex wristwatch, and other pricey fashionable accessories back to its owner, a Cambodian, when she was checking in for a flight to Ho Chi Minh City at Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Saturday, VnExpress reported.
The passenger extended her heartfelt thanks to the cabin crew of the flight VN522 for contacting her and returning the bag to her, as the items are not only expensive but they are also her memorable souvenirs.
The passenger had left the bag in the drawer of her seat in the business class cabin of her flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Shanghai on January 4.
She came to another city in China after disembarking from the plane.
Vietnam Airlines found it hard to contact her as she had left no phone number behind.
But the carrier managed to contact her after several days.
Last year, the chief flight attendant of Vietnam Airlines gave a bag containing US$13,000 in cash to a passenger after they had left it on a flight.
In 2018, another Vietnam Airlines steward returned personal papers, Vietnamese cash, and foreign currencies worth over VND30 million ($1,298) in total to a passenger as well, VietNamNet reported.
