Wow, quite a story which apparently occurred on Delta equity partner GOL according to The Daily Mail. A female passenger began screaming when upon waking up from a nap she discovered fluids on her clothing. The male passenger seated next to her said he had a coughing fit and accidentally spit on her. She has quite a different story about what happened just 30 minutes into the flight:
“I fell asleep as soon as the plane took off. Half an hour later I woke up when the man beside me started pulling on my hand. To my horror I realized he was trying to put my hand on his genitals. I then realized my legs and lap were stained.”
Once she began shouting about what happened, a fight erupted on board, as passengers attacked the suspect. The man was arrested upon landing in Brasilia.
The male passenger told police the same coughing story and will go to court to answer the charges against him.
The airline crew apparently moved him to an empty row at the back of the aircraft and is looking to ban him for life.
“We strongly condemn the violence that occurred on Friday morning. We are looking for ways to ban the passenger. The crew acted immediately, immobilizing the aggressor and the captain informed federal police of the incident. On landing, the aircraft’s doors were kept shut until officers arrived.”
