Craziest airline story of the year… so far

OK, usually I wouldn’t make a post without factual information and/or a reliable source, but tonight is different so please cut me some slack. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I read this story, but it is quite unbelievable (again, for all I know it could be made up or could be true, but it’s worth a chuckle). The full story can be found here.

Woman files lawsuit against AMR because passenger next to her masturbated while she slept

A 21-year-old Harris County woman filed a $200,000 lawsuit against American Airlines alleging employees on a flight to Los Angeles from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport failed to protect her while she slept from another passenger who masturbated to her and ejaculated in her hair, according to a lawsuit she filed last week in Tarrant County.


When the woman opened her eyes, she saw that an unknown man had moved into the seat next to her and was staring at her as he masturbated, the suit states.
The woman turned toward the window in embarrassment and in an act of nervousness began to run her fingers through her hair where she noticed “a substantial amount of an extremely sticky substance in her hair,” the suit states.
The woman began to cry and tried to get the attention of a flight attendant, but was unsuccessful, the suit states. Finally a passenger in the row in front of the woman comforted her and verified the semen in her hair, the suit states.
When the plane landed, employee called airport police and the man was arrested.

OK, and this lady is filing a suit against AMR because they saw him move seats? Hmm, I don’t know about AA, but at UA there’s no policy against changing seats as long as you stay in the same cabin. Is it different at AA? There’s so many comments I could make on this but I’ll restrain myself and leave it the imagination of my creative readers.;)

And for the quote of the day on FlyerTalk by Val:

This must be why SouthWest doesn’t want pretty girls on their planes.
