Usually onboard harassment involves a creepy guy and alcohol. This time onboard harassment involved alcohol and a creepy girl. Maybe that only happens, or at least happens most often, when the victim plays in the NFL.
NFL player filed a lawsuit against United Airlines on Wednesday alleging the company failed to properly respond to his reporting of sexual assault and harassment during a Feb. 10 flight from Los Angeles to Newark, New Jersey.
[Two players] allege four complaints were made against a female passenger sitting in the same row for “unwanted sexual advances” before flight attendants moved her.
Allegedly the woman was “intoxicated and taking prescription pills” and flight attendants only moved her after she “ripped off [the football player’s] face mask, which was being worn to guard against COVID-19, and grabbed his penis.” The players were offered $150 vouchers for the incident.
The unidentified NFL player and “John Doe 2” are seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

Were football players wearing COVID-19 face masks on February 10? I began covering it in mid-January, by the end of January U.S. airlines were suspending China flights, so maybe?
