A HORRIFIED woman has recalled her flight from hell after she was forced to sit next to a “masturbating” passenger who asked if she had a boyfriend when he had finished.
The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, was flying from Brisbane to Sydney, Australia, and was initially delighted with her seating arrangements.
She had moved from her original seat close to the aisle, to sit next to the window as she had the entire row to herself.
But just before take off, a man in his 20s, “with a shaved back head and long ponytail at the top”, sat in her original seat and started “rubbing” himself.
She told news.com.au: “He sat down, he had his sunglasses on, earphones in, smelled of alcohol, and the entire time he was rubbing the extent of his genitalia.
“He did it the entire time, changing hands, rubbing, he was clenching his fist, he was holding his d*** and rubbing it back and forth.
“I kept looking thinking, ‘is that actually happening’?”
After ten minutes of feeling uncomfortable, the woman alerted one of the flight attendants who told her, he needed to go to the toilet.
She claimed the flight attendant also ignored her request to have him moved.
The “masturbating” man briefly left his seat, but upon his return, he touched the woman’s arm to show her a message he had written on his mobile.
The message read: “I’m sorry about before if that made you feel uncomfortable.”
But as she failed to make any sort of response, he showed her another message which read: “I think you’re really beautiful, do you have a boyfriend?”
Furious, she later made a formal complaint to Tigerairline’s, but she claimed they ignored her and then blamed her for not contacting the cabin crew.
