Vying to be the creepiest passenger ever faces stiff competition. There was the Japanese man watching porn and groping the woman seated next to him and the naked couple having sex in their seat while halfway covering up with their jackets.
But a 42 year old Pakistani from Staten Island who manages a Subway was convicted this week for being worse than any other passenger, ever.
A 25 year old New Jersey woman testified about her experience on an Emirates flight from Dubai to New York JFK last fall in his trial.
She had taken Xanax because, well, economy. Next thing she knows the man seated to her right is whispering in her ear, “I love you, you’re pretty” as she wakes up.
That’s when she realized her body was ‘sticky’ and smelled of Nivea lotion. She went to the lavatory and discovered that “her shoulders, breasts, arms, inner thighs, calves and vagina” were covered in lotion and that “her thong had been pushed aside.”
She alerted crew, who report that the man admitted to everything, claiming she ‘needed’ it and enjoyed it. This was apparently normal to him because something similar “happened to him as a child.”
The man confessed to police. He was convicted and will be sentenced in August. The woman is suing Emirates.
