We’ve all heard of the “friendly skies”, but some people have gotten carried away. A 21-year-old woman has filed a $200,000 lawsuit against American Airlines alleging employees on a flight from Dallas to Los Angeles didn’t watch her back while she slept. But, someone else did. Another passenger got in the seat beside her, proceeded to masturbate and ejaculated in her hair, according to a lawsuit she filed last week in Tarrant County. The suit also states that the woman alleges that employees of the airline have knowledge of risks involved when they do not “police the passengers to ensure that passengers do not hurt one another.”
The lawsuit also gave details of the woman’s trip stating that as she settled in for the last leg of her trip where she fell asleep, she awoke about 20 minutes before the pilot announced that they were descending into L.A. and looked around to find unknown man in the seat next to her, staring at her and masturbating. She turned to the window and instinctfully ran her hands through her hair out of nervousness where she noticed “a substantial amount of an extremely sticky substance in her hair.” No flight attendants came to her rescue, but another passenger in the row in front of her comforted her and verified that there was indeed semen in the woman’s hair. But, an employee did notify airport police when the plane landed and the man was arrested.
The only statement the airlines has made was to a Houston television station last year and a spokesman said the company regretted the incident, but the flight crew took appropriate action. The woman is seeking punitive damages and a jury trial.
But I have to say, after hearing the story, I wonder, HOW THE HECK DID HE GET IT IN HER HAIR? But my biggest question is …WHAT IS OPRAH GOING TO HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS? It is just as much her favorite airline as Southwest is Tom Joyner’s. -Jacci B.
