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.
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.
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.”
We know the above headline is likely to make you laugh.
But this is a serious matter.
This is the story of a real tragedy that took place in Great Britain.
According to various news outlets, a 24-year old father named Ateeq Rafiq was seeing a movie in Birmingham, England on March 9 when he dropped his cellphone between two reclining seats.
When Rafiq bent down to pick up the item, the footrest on the electrically-powered seat clamped down on his head, reports the Birmingham Mail newspaper.
The horrific incident took place at Vue Cinema at Star City, the outside of which is pictured below.
Said a spokesperson for the venue in a prepared statement:
“Following an incident which took place on Friday 9 March at our Birmingham cinema, we can confirm that a customer was taken to hospital that evening.
“We are saddened to learn that he passed away on Friday 16 March.
“A full investigation into the nature of the incident is ongoing. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family who have our full support and assistance.”
How could this possibly have happened?
A source familiar with the situation described what transpired thusly when speaking to the aforementioned publication:
“The Gold Class seats are electric reclining seats. He bent down to look for his phone.
“At this point the leg-rest was in an upright position. But as he stuck his head underneath to have a look, the footrest clamped down onto his head. He was stuck.
“His partner and staff tried to free him but couldn’t. The chair leg-rest was eventually broken free and he managed to get out.”
From there, Rafiq was taken to a local hospital.
He passed away several days later from injuries sustained in this freak accident.
The victim’s family is devastated by the loss, says sister-in-law Fatima Arzo to The Daily Mirror.
“We are grieving and completely in shock. My sister is in pieces,” she told the newspaper, adding:
“We are grateful to everyone who tried to help him, and at the moment we are praying and trying to come to terms with the fact we lost a loved one.”
The cinema complex at Star City where this took place features 25 screens, including three Gold Class rooms where the emphasis is on comfort and luxury.
Reads the official website:
“The Gold Class ticket price includes complimentary popcorn during your film and is strictly for over 18’s, offering luxury seating with a fully licensed bar and an enhanced viewing experience.
“Gold Class customers are welcome to visit the Gold Class bar to enjoy a drink before and during the screening.”
Our thoughts go out to the family of Ateeq Rafiq.
May he rest in peace.
We could all use a little emotional support at times.
But this is getting ridiculous.
As frequent travelers are likely aware, animals deemed to provide this sort of comfort to airline passengers have become more and more popular over recent years.
There's a small dog on nearly every flight these days.
But a conceptual artist with the name "Ventiko" on Instagram recently took the program one step further: she tried to take her "emotional support" peacock, Dexter, on board a cross country flight from Newark to Los Angeles.
This is the story of that bird's thwarted flight and the Internet's response to it…
1. This is Dexter
2. And We Mean… PERSISTED!
3. What? I’ll Pay for His Seat!
4. The Internet Reacts!
5. Down with Dogs!
