A Texas woman sues American Airlines for $ 6 million after claiming to have been touched and sexually harassed when flight attendants drank alcohol from the drunk man sitting next to her.
The woman, unidentified, flew on an American Airlines flight from London to Dallas in November last year when the alleged incident occurred.
She claims that flight attendants are the man next to her alcohol & # 39; three drinks at the same time & # 39; continued to serve even after she said he was drunk and touched her.
The woman, who was sitting in the window seat, said the man did not initially appear drunk when he sat next to her and asked if she had a & # 39; good honky-tonk & # 39; in Dallas knew where he could drink.

She claims that he eventually began to boast that he drank & # 39; up to 25 beers a day & # 39; and then spilled wine over a flight attendant.
At one point during the flight, the woman said she grabbed her bag for a tea bag and the man shouted: & Hey everyone, look; she gets a condom out of her bag because she and I are going to have sex in the toilet! & # 39;
The man claimed that he slept before putting his head on her chest. When she pushed him away from her, the man pretended to wake up and reportedly asked: & # 39; Have we already had sex? & # 39; and & # 39; Is it time to do it? & # 39;
He reportedly slid his hand under her blanket and started rubbing her thigh. When the woman got up to move, the man grabbed her wrists and shouted: "Please don't divorce me," according to the lawsuit.
The woman said she had complained repeatedly to the stewardesses, but they kept pouring him alcohol.
Eventually the flight attendants took the woman to another seat on the plane.
& # 39; I was angry because the stewardesses actually advised me to pretend to be asleep & # 39 ;, the woman told NBC5.
& # 39; It was terrible. It was very frightening. & # 39;
The woman said the man was eventually escorted from the flight when it landed in Dallas (above), but he was released without charge
The man was escorted from the flight when it landed in Dallas, but he was released without charge.
The woman said that she has since tried to make a declaration, but it has proved difficult because the man lives in England.
& # 39; I tried to prevent this from escalating and I feel that I didn't get the support I needed to make that happen, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; If I do not speak, if I do not follow all available channels, it means that it is good and it is not. & # 39;
American Airlines said in a statement that they were deeply troubled & # 39; allegations of misconduct on their flights.
& # 39; If our crews discover or are told about an alleged illegal misconduct on the aircraft, the police will be contacted and the aircraft will meet the aircraft upon arrival & # 39 ;, the statement said.
& # 39; In all cases of misconduct between two passengers, we will immediately separate them and request law enforcement to meet the aircraft, which is our standard protocol. It is up to law enforcement officials to determine what, if any, criminal activities have taken place. & # 39;
