    Vietnam’s aviation authorities decided Friday to fine two pilots and suspend them for one month for taking photos with a former tourism envoy in the cockpit during a Vietnam Airlines international flight last month.

    Nguyen Trong Thang, a chief inspector at the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), told Tuoi Tre that Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Y, the captain, has been fined VND7 million (US$333), and Y is not allowed to use his pilot license for a month following that violation of aviation safety rules.

    Y’s deputy Nguyen Xuan Hai has been required to submit a VND3 million ($143) penalty, Thang said, adding that a one-month suspension has also been imposed on Hai’s license.

    The chief flight attendant, Lam Quang Tien, is now subject to VND750,000 ($36) in fines for his involvement in this incident. Tien is banned from serving on flights in the next one month as well.
