A passenger on a domestic Vietnam Airlines flight said he had $11,192 in his carryon, which he stowed in an overhead bin. Big mistake – I’d put it on my person or cradle that bag in my arms.
Sure enough, when the plane landed in Dong Hoi, he looked for the money, but it had disappeared.
Happy ending, though – flight attendants searched for the money as the plane continued onto another destination, and found it stashed under a seat (not the one the guy had been sitting in). The money was returned in full to its rightful owner.
Three flight attendants – presumably not the ones that discovered the hidden cash – have since been suspended, and an investigation is continuing.
True, airline fees have gone up and nobody’s giving away those cans of Pringles, but still –$11 thousand dollars?? You were kind of asking for it, buddy…
