A Southwest Airlines passenger who was being asked by a flight attendant to prepare for landing, leapt up and punched the flight attendant in the face. The flight attendant was left stunned and bloodied as another passenger got up to assist. Video of the events has left little doubt as to the sequence of events and Southwest has banned the woman from flying the airline in the future. The ban was announced to their employees last week.
The mayhem occurred on a plane from Sacramento, California to San Diego. San Diego Harbor Police arrested Vyvianna Quinonez, 28, once the aircraft landed. She was charged with felony battery. The flight attendant reportedly lost two teeth in the melee.
