News reports were all over the place throughout the weekend about an American Airlines flight from Charlotte to Boston where a “criminal act” had taken place. Now we know more about what happened on board Saturday’s flight 1441 involving “a juvenile, a phone and a flight attendant.”
It was a hidden camera in the lavatory. And police boarded the aircraft when it landed in Boston.
[A passenger] said he saw a young girl walk to the plane’s first class bathroom before she was stopped by a male flight attendant.
…“He stopped her and said, ‘hey, hold on just a second. We’re about to start collecting trash so I’m going to wash my hands.’ So he went in the bathroom and then she went to the bathroom,” the passenger explained. The passenger believes this is when the reported “criminal act” took place. He said after the girl came out, other passengers saw the flight attendant go back in. That is when he says the girl’s mom came running up to the bathroom to stop another person from going in.
“The mom came up, she stopped the other lady from going in the bathroom. She said ‘don’t go in there,’” the passenger said. That passenger said he was told the mom was saying there was a camera in the bathroom.
According to American Airlines,
American Airlines flight 1441 from Charlotte (CLT) to Boston (BOS) was met by law enforcement upon arrival. We take this matter very seriously and are fully cooperating with law enforcement in their investigation, as safety and security are our highest priorities
In 2019 a United passenger was caught videotaping women in the lavatory. The way he was caught is fitting. He accidentally recorded himself installing the camera, so when the camera was found there he was on it.
A couple of months later came reports that Southwest Airlines pilots spent a flight watching passengers use the lavatory. This is when they were supposed to be flying their plane.
