Several Women Say Airlines Don’t Take Their Complaints About Men Masturbating Next To Them Seriously

Dixon is one of several women over the past 10 years who have accused various airlines of failing to protect them from masturbating men. In some cases, women said that the airline failed to notify law enforcement. In others, women said the flight crew mishandled the complaint by “joking” about it, not reseating them, or not confronting the alleged offender.

In 2014, 38 cases of in-flight sexual assault were reported to the FBI. That number increased to 63 in 2017. There’s no further breakdown for the type of sexual assault.

In 2008, a Texas woman filed a $200,000 lawsuit against American Airlines, alleging that the airline staff were “not accessible” when she needed help after a man masturbated in the seat next to her and then ejaculated on her hair during a 2006 flight.

And in July 2017, a woman accused American Airlines of failing to protect her after a man allegedly masturbated next to her. In a Medium post, Chloe King said flight attendants did not wake her up or move her to a safe place after another woman complained that the man sitting between them was masturbating.
