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. The Harris County woman alleges employees knew of the risks associated with failing to police the passengers to ensure that passengers do not hurt one another, the suit states. Airline officials did not return calls seeking comment. In a statement to a Houston television station last year, a spokesman said the company regretted the incident, but the flight crew took appropriate action. The woman and her lawyer could not be reached for comment. The Star-Telegram does not identify victims of sexual crimes. Destined for a Spring Break visit with family and friends March 19, the woman flew from Houston to DFW Airport and had settled into her seat for the last leg of flight 2074 to Los Angeles about 11 p.m., the suit states. The woman slept most of the flight, but awoke about 20 minutes before landing when the pilot announced the plane was on decent into Los Angeles. 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. The suit alleges that the during the investigation, American Airlines employees told police they witnessed the man move from his assigned seat into the row where the woman was sleeping. The woman is seeking punitive damages and a jury trial.

........................ Wouldn’t know what to say on this one.
Wonder how the verification was accomplished? I don’t really want to know though......
But wasn’t it funny in “Something About Mary”?
Is this what they mean by “Fly the Friendly Skies?”
Definitely NOT an “I’ll have what she’s having” moment.
The guy must have the IQ of a garden vegetable.
Of course she is.
I can just see it now. Flight attendant "A" sees man in 23D cranking it and just ignores it. Right.
How about suing the guy who did it?
What a disgusting thing to happen to her. No other passengers or flight attendents did anything? The freaking slime should get some prison time and American should buy her off without her having to go court.
Having worked on the operations side of an airline for 10 years, there is no limit to the stories I can tell. From the jar of Kimchee opened in flight resulting in an emergency diversion, to Cat Chow, the (in)famous New York “artist”, who stowed away on one of our flights. She hid in the bathroom, and when a passenger got up to use the restroom, she would take their seat. After she was unmasked, she was arrested on multiple felonies, including drug possesion. We are convinced that the IQ of someone is directly related to the proximity of an airport. Sadly this story about AA is not uncommon at all. We have are share of these stories, too..
Who knew that Bill flew commercial.
How could the passenger verify the semen if he was sitting in front of her and didn't see what happened? Was he some kind of Johnny-On-the-Spot bodily fluid expert? Sounds like BS to me. Probably an attempt to extort money from the airlines.
It would save the state a considerable amount of time and money.
Does this make the guy a member of the 1/2 Mile High Club?
What was her hair doing in his lap? Uh nevermind.
200K is not enough.
adult juvenile content.
"We love to fly and it shows"
"You are now free to move about the cabin"
"We're American Airlines, Something Special in Your Hair"
"Will that be Wanking or non-Wanking?"
"Excuse me, sir...Sir? That is NOT your safety strap.!"
