    Woman says attendant did not do enough to protect her

    A woman is calling on Jazz, an Air Canada affiliated airline, to better protect customers after an incident that left her feeling "trapped" by a man believed to be drunk.

    The alleged harassment started on an early Monday Jazz flight from Yellowknife to Calgary, which takes about two hours.

    Alyson Beaudoin-Goodman, 19, who was heading home to Newfoundland, said the man sitting beside her appeared to be drunk and soon took an interest in her.

    "He was like touching me and nudging me and I asked him to stop twice — he kept doing it," she said.

    Beaudoin-Goodman said it got worse and the man tipped his drink on her.
    "He was saying vulgar things, and saying he'd like to take me to a hotel," she said.

    "Beaudoin-Goodman said the airline needs to have an extra seat where someone could be moved. " :rolleyes:

    That way he can annoy somebody else. No wait a minute let's make that seat a cage.

    Unfortunate circumstance, but not sure there is a solution beyond what the FA already did.

    I guess another thing the FA would be able to do, is to have cops escort him out of the plane once it landed.

    I dont know about ya'll, but when I'm tipsy, I just want to snooze! :D
     
  4. He did too but not on the plane and not alone;) I see guys like that all the time who get macho when a good looking woman is beside them on a flight. it must be the thin air or something

    Love these two comments in the same article:
    McKay-Panos was one of the three people that got obese passengers two seats fro the price of one.

    Lets have everyone with an extra seat, just to be safe. :rolleyes:

  13. What's next from these so called civil Libertarians? Breathylzers at the gate to determine if someone is drunk enough and should get a double seat so they won't harass sober pax?:mad:

  16. That happened to me just last week. The PAX behind me dressed in a nice suit had a smelly orchestra playing throughout the 45 minute flight

    In addition to headsets etc, I suggest that the following equipment be added to the frequent flyers equipment list. :D

    minnestrone has beans in it, right?

    also for the lactose intolerant, there is a cornucopia of cheeses to select from, not to mention the milk-laden van Houtte coffee machine options! :D

    The obvious solution would be sex-segregated cabins.
