United Airlines stands accused of allowing a male passenger to masturbate while sitting across from a 17 year-old female passenger last year. From TMZ:

The passenger, represented by Gloria Allred, claims a male passenger seated across the aisle from her exposed his penis to her during the flight … and masturbated. The passenger says she complained to a flight attendant multiple times — and the flight attendant did nothing to stop the man from continuing his behavior … she wasn’t moved, and the passenger wasn’t addressed in any way. The passenger says the man briefly stopped masturbating while the flight attendant was nearby, but quickly resumed once the flight attendant left.

See the full article for further details and exactly why she’s suing United and how they are responsible in her (or her attorney’s)opinion.

Gloria Allred hasn’t had her name in the news for a couple weeks, nothing more needs to be said.

What I do not understand is – flight attendants make a big fuzz for less.

This just doesn’t seem to add up. I want to see what the guy was convicted of.

If it were my daughter, ( she is pretty tough) she would have rolled up the inflight magazine and given him a swat where it counts.

( or maybe just humiliate him by pointing and laughing )

She alleges that United did not help her because she was flying using her dad’s frequent flyer miles!?!?!

@ Sean – this is not new. American has treated me terribly in the past when I’ve used my mother’s frequent flier miles unaccompanied. They’ve changed my (transpacific!) flights and refused to tell me the flight numbers I’m rebooked on or even what time the flights will approximately depart. And they wouldn’t talk to my mom because she wasn’t traveling. I hope this girl wins her lawsuit.

If she was really offended wouldn’t she start yelling and draw attention to the perp? Most males (myself included) would have decked the guy immediately and demanded the plastic handcuffs. Something about this story doesn’t add up.

I agree. Doesn’t add up. I would assume they can subpoena this guy and other passengers on the flight to get more info.

I almost sued United before because the flight attendant refused to help me masturbate…
This is just such a stupid set up. I am not the biggest airline fan, but this is ridiculous. She could have turned away. But big bad United should pay? I don’t think so.
Any no FA knows the fare you paid or didn’t pay…

Somehow I just don’t see the humor in these comments. Imagine if it was your 17 year old daughter, jerks.

@Points – if I had a 17 yr old daughter, the last thing I’d be worried about is having her view a penis from 5′ away…by that age, she’s almost certainly viewed them up close and very personally…

@Paul, you suck and you know that is is just not appropriate, keep your dick to yourself

If she had taken video evidence United probably would have thrown her off the plane for photographing a passenger.
