“Horny” Airline Passenger Allegedly Molests Seatmate

A man has been fired from his job after molesting a woman beside him, both while she slept and while she was awake, during a commercial flight.

He apparently also told a flight attendant that he was “horny” and pleasured himself.

No one enjoys flying, but this particular intercontinental flight was a nightmare for the woman seated beside him.

According to court documents, Monte Wedl was an absolute terror in the skies.

On a United Airlines flight from Hong Kong to San Francisco, he apparently downed at least three or four vodka sodas and took an Ambien.

(While it is not an excuse for any behavior that follows aside from falling asleep, please, please do not mix Ambien with alcohol)

Wedl reportedly got out of his seat told an attendant, Eva Yu, that he missed his wife and was “horny.”

That is, uh, literally never appropriate.

And it only got worse from there for Anne Maureen Dowling, the woman who had the unenviable position of being seated beside him.

After making is wildly inappropriate statement to the flight crew member, Wedl returned to his seat.

It was then, the documents allege, that he placed his “hand on the back of her leg near her buttock.”

Don’t … don’t do that.

Dowling “removed his hand and fell back asleep.” Sometimes, you don’t know how to respond to an awkward situation so you do your best to ignore it in the hopes that it will stop.

In Dowling’s case, it only became worse.

She woke up again to Wedl allegedly “rubbing her thigh, grabbing her butt, and attempting to reach into her pants.”

This alleged sexual assault was only repelled when she “cried ‘stop’ and he withdrew his hand from her body.”

Her outrage did not seem to mean much to Wedl, who reportedly “creepily smiled at her in response.” Yikes.

That should have never happened, of course — but surely that should have been the end of this nightmare.

Unfortunately, it was not.

Later during the flight, Wedl apparently “forced his hand between Dowling’s body and her own hand.”

It sounds like she was trying to protect her body with her hands, to no avail.

“He then,” the documents describe. “Firmly began rubbing her vagina through her clothes.”

No!!

As if to make matters somehow worse than they already were, Wedl was allegedly “rapidly masturbating underneath his blanket” at the same time.

As we mentioned, Wedl was fired from his job. He was a commercial pilot for FedEx.

She was eventually moved, but she says that a flight attendant initially told her that it would not be possible, and suggested that she instead talk to Wendl about his behavior.

Upon the plane’s landing, Dowling immediately reported what had happened to law enforcement and to the airline.

Wendl was acquitted. Now that the criminal case has ended, Dowling is moving forward with a lawsuit against United.

This took place in business class, by the way. Dowling had been upgraded at the beginning of the flight.

Now she has PTSD, and is seeking $ 75,000 in damages from both United and Wedl.

Everyone is scared of flying, but sometimes the most unpleasant experiences during flights come from fellow passengers and not the airplane.

People can be monsters.

Woman Tweets Airline Meet-Cute, Sparks #PlaneBae Controversy

Twitter has erupted in controversy, folks.

Not over the color of a dress or the sound of a word this time, but over the right to one's privacy while on board an airplane.

Earlier this month, a Twitter user named Rosey Blair was flying to Dallas when she asked a young woman if he would switch seats with her so that she could sit next to her boyfriend.

The woman obliged, moving just one row up, right in front of Blair, and paving the way for a viral meet-cute.

Indeed, Blair proceeded to live-Tweet the interactions and the exchanges between this man and the man who took the window next along her side, sparking an unexpected controversy across social media.

Was Blair just being funny, providing a few chuckles for her followers by chronicling a pretty cool turn of events?

Or was she being way creepy for invading the privacy of these individuals?

Drunk Airline Passenger Pees on Seat, Gets Arrested

Here’s something different for a change:

It’s a story about an airline passenger sucking, as opposed to yet another story about an airline itself sucking.

frontier

Last Thursday, a man named Michael A. Haag was on board a Frontier Airlines flight from Denver to Charleston.

So far, so normal, right?

Plenty of men fly on a daily basis from this lovely Colorado city to this historic South Carolina destination.

About two hours into the journey, however, Haag reportedly granted the woman seated next to him, much to her understandable horror and chagrin.

Said a fellow passenger, recounting what transpired to a local Fox affiliate in Denver:

“I hear a woman scream, if this man f-cking touches me one more time I’ll f-cking kill him.”

The fellow passenger (who identified herself as “Emilu” added that the 45-year old Haag seemed “extremely intoxicated” and “out of his mind,” while the woman who was groped said she witnessed him down two double shots of vodka on the flight.

YIKES.

Haag also allegedly verbally assaulted another woman, asking her variouspersonal questions about her sexual habits.

After flight attendants learned of Haag’s behavior, they reassigned him, moving him to the back of the plane where there was an empty row of seats.

Out of sight, therefore, and out of mind?

Not quite, unfortunately.

It actually got far more gross and disgusting from there.

Haag apparently went ahead and started urinated on the seat in front of him.

He just whipped out his penis and relieved himself, right then and there.

(It could have been worse, we guess, he could have made like this woman and pooped on the floor.)

“I scream, ‘He’s f-cking peeing. He’s peeing. Oh my God,'” Emily told Fox, adding:

“And the flight attendant doesn’t even acknowledge him at first. [The attendant] acknowledges me and says you need to calm down and stop cursing.”

Thankfully, attention eventually turned to Haag, who was taken away from the airport gate in handcuffs and charged with interfering with flight crew, as well as and indecent exposure.

He was later released on $ 25,000 bond, according to Fox 31.

Emily wasn’t thrilled with the response of Frontier, saying someone should have been keeping a closer eye on Haag after he was moved.

In response to her complaint, the airline waived her bag fee and gifted her a $ 200 Frontier voucher.

Frontier has since released a statement confirming that the carrier is “aware of the situation” and “working with the appropriate authorities,” concluding:

“Frontier has zero tolerance for behavior that affects the safety of our passengers and crew. We are supporting authorities in their investigation.”

Student Claims Airline Forced Her to Flush Emotional Support Hamster Down Toilet

A Florida college student says she was left in tears late last year after a Spirit Airlines employee said she wasn’t permitted to bring her emotional support hamster on board a flight.

Yes, her emotional support hamster.

Before you laugh at this story, however, keep reading down below. It’s actually pretty sad…

this is pebbles

According to The Miami Herald, Belen Aldecosea, a 21-year old from South Florida, was flying home from college due to an urgent medical issue in November.

She says she checked with Spirit on multiple occasions prior to the day of her flight and was assured that the hamster, Pebbles, would be allowed on the plane.

(Yes, Belen also says, a doctor certified the hamster as an emotional support companion. We assume this means she had a note from the physician.)

However, upon arriving at the Baltimore airport, Aldecosea was told the opposite.

She was told that Pebbles could not accompany her on her trip.

With no friends or family members anywhere in the area, and being too young to rent a car, Aldecosea says she was at a loss about how to proceed.

college student

She claims an airline employee suggested she flush Pebbles down a toilet.

“One of the representatives started giving me little tips like, ‘Oh you should just leave her, or flush her down the toilet,’” Aldecosea told The Herald.

She didn’t want to murder little Pebbles, but Aldecosea explained to the newspaper that she didn’t have “any other options.”

Therefore, crying uncontrollably, she went through with the recommended act, figuring it was more humane than releasing Pebbles outside, only for him to eventually get hit by a car.

“She was scared. I was scared,” Aldecosea told the publication. “It was horrifying trying to put her in the toilet.”

We can only imagine.

Aldecosea has hired an attorney and is considering filing a lawsuit against Spirit Airlines for the conflicting information that she says led her to flush her emotional support pet.

In response to Aldecosea’s allegation, Spirit released the following statement on Thursday:

After researching this incident, we can say confidently that at no point did any of our agents suggest this Guest (or any other for that matter) should flush or otherwise injure an animal. It is incredibly disheartening to hear this Guest reportedly decided to end her own pet’s life.

Our reservation representative, unfortunately, did misinform the Guest that a hamster was permitted to fly as an emotional support animal on Spirit Airlines.

When the Guest appeared with the hamster at the airport, our agents offered and the Guest accepted an opportunity to take a later flight, so she had time to find other accommodations for the animal.

Our records indicate she was scheduled to take the 10:39 am flight on Nov. 21, but ended up taking the 7:42 pm flight that day.

We did offer the Guest a voucher for the inconvenience, but we never heard back from her.

This story has gone viral because… well… an emotional support hamster was involved.

But also because airlines of late have been cracking down on emotional support pets in general.

Woman Comforts Crying Child, Proves Not All Airline Passengers Suck

No one likes when a child cries on a plane.

But do you know who hates when a child cries on a plane the most?

The parent holding said child!

Still, for some depressing reason, fellow passengers often give the adults riding with young kids a hard time when these kids get sad.

That's what happened when a woman named Kesha Bernard was flying from Seattle to Denver and a toddler started wailing.

As documented on Facebook (and below), Bernard was aghast at the reaction of those around her, prior to jumping into helpful action herself…

1. This is Kesha Bernard

This is kesha bernard
She has two kids of her own… two young kids of her own even. So she understood exactly what a passenger was going through on board a flight that featured a mother flying alone with THREE small humans.

2. This is Kesha Bernard and a Child Who is NOT Hers

This is kesha bernard and a child who is not hers
Kesha shared this photo on her Facebook page and then explained its origin to her friends.

3. And This is What Happened:

And this is what happened
Yes, a baby started crying. How dare it do such a thing, right?!?

4. She Could Ignore a Baby Crying

She could ignore a baby crying
But not the complaints other passengers dared to file out loud while the plane was grounded.

5. Hell to the NO!

Hell to the no
Yes, a woman actually did this to a child.

6. No One Offered to Help in Any Way

No one offered to help in any way
Not even the flight attendant.

Woman Live Tweets Every Airline Passenger’s Worst Nightmare

When Jessie Char arrived at her seat on a recent JetBlue flight, she witnessed the most glorious sight any airline passenger could ever hope to see:

An empty middle seat and an empty window seat.

The surprise was so beautiful that Char had to Tweet about it, right then and there:

empty seats

On her flight home Long Beach to San Francisco, the 30-year old would get to relax with no concern over anyone’s elbows or any fellow passenger forcing her up to use the bathroom.

It’s what we all dream of when board a flight, right?

But then Char’s fantasy turned into a nightmare.

Prepared to maybe even lie across all three seats and squeeze in a nap, Char wrote a mysterious Tweet.

“You guys will never guess what happened next,” she teased to followers.

char tweet

“I noticed one of the armrests collapse and so I looked over only to see a foot emerge from the row behind me,” Char explained to People Magazine, adding in horror:

“It was writhing around on one armrest and there was a significant amount of toe wiggling.”

No. Oh God… no.

This didn’t really happen, did it?

Yes, it did:

flying nightmare

Char says she crouched down into her seat “to remain undetected.” She couldn’t help but snap a photo of the bare feet that will forever haunt her sleep.

And then things got even worse!

“While I was logging onto the airplane Wi-Fi, I saw the left foot stretch over to open the window, and then close it again,” she told The Today Show, which also picked this story up.

“I looked to the front and back for the nearest flight attendant and caught someone’s eye, but by the time she reached me the feet discreetly retracted back into the abyss of row 6.”

gross feet

Why didn’t Char say something to this individual?

“I was in literal shock,” she told People. “I think I needed another human with me in the moment to reassure me I wasn’t just seeing things.”

Char’s tweet of the feet has been Liked on Twitter over 26,000 times and received over 5,000 retweets.

flight advice

Will she ever fly again? Yes, of course, don’t be silly.

But she does have some advice for anyone who encounters a similar situation.

“I tried not to breathe super heavily while [the bare feet] were present,” she said.

She’s a better person than we are, that’s for sure.

Forget breathing heavy. We’d have drank heavily and then “accidentally” spilled our beverage on the inappropriate appendages extended across the seats next to us. 

When she got up upon landing, Char said she spotted the woman who committed this traveling sin.

She’s in her mid 40s, Char estimates, and is approximately 5’3″.

So beware if you see someone who looks like this on your next flight! Prepare to take action!
