Vyvianna Quinonez Attacks Southwest Flight Attendants
A passenger seated a few rows away from a violent altercation on a flight from Sacramento to San Diego, a Sacramento County woman allegedly assaulted a Southwest flight attendant and knocked out two of her teeth, captured the first punch on video.
San Diego resident Michelle Manner told The Sacramento Bee in a phone interview that the punch was the culmination of a “two-sided” verbal argument that lasted most of the flight.
The incident happened Sunday on Southwest Flight 700, as it was preparing to land at San Diego International Airport after departing from Sacramento International Airport.
Manner shared with The Bee a 45-second cellphone video clip showing a woman, identified by Port of San Diego Harbor Police as Vyvianna Quinonez, 28, of Antelope, seated in an aisle seat in the last row plane with a flight attendant standing over her.

Manner’s video begins with the passenger seat to the right of Quinonez pointing at the flight attendant and saying, “We are gonna sue you.”
Moments later, Quinonez stood up and punched the flight attendant on the right side of her face, the video shows.
She threw several more punches that did not land as the flight attendant, who has not been identified, recoiled. Blood can be seen streaming down her cheek later in the video.
After the punch, a male passenger intervened between the two and began shouting at Quinonez, “Don’t you dare touch her!” as the passenger sat back down in her seat, Manner’s video showed.
“It was all bad. It was a very shaking experience,” Manner told The Bee. “The argument went both ways.”
In a Tuesday news release, Harbor Police said the passenger “struck the flight attendant, causing serious injuries.” She was booked Sunday into Las Colinas Detention Facility on a charge of felony battery causing serious bodily injury but was released the same day after posting a $35,000 bond, records show.
