    A fight between two flight attendants forced a Chicago-bound United Airlines flight to Raleigh/Durham International Airport shortly after takeoff this morning, according to The News & Observer of Raleigh
    .
    "Our law enforcement team was notified by the tower that the captain had requested law enforcement to meet the aircraft," Mindy Hamlin, RDU spokeswoman, tells the News & Observer. "The aircraft had gotten about 50 miles out when he reported a possible assault on the aircraft."

    and if it had been 2 airline employees they would have been terminated.

    They might lose their jobs over this row though.

    Last week American Eagle, this week United. There are a kazillion flight attendants, and these two incidents involve a whole four of them. That said, I'm still reminded of the late Mr. Rodney King: "why can't we all (just) get along?" :(

    I was comparing to the previous poster saying if passengers duked it out they'd have been thrown in jail and I was saying if airline employees (flight attendants included) did the same there's no excuse for not throwing them in jail too or terminating them.
