In the wee hours of Thursday morning a passenger on board American Airlines flight 1344 from Chicago O’Hare to Charlotte urinated on another passenger’s luggage.
According to the police report, the victim is a 28-year-old female who was not hurt. Damages are listed at $100.
…the report also mentions no charges against the passenger.
I’d be tempted to crack that ‘when an airline changes its inflight product to resemble a UK charter carrier, it’s increasingly likely to attract the kind of passengers who fly on package holiday deals to Spanish party destinations’ but this isn’t the first time an American Airlines passenger did something like this at a time they had only begun to densify aircraft after their takeover by US Airways management.
Last month of course American had to cancel a transatlantic flight when a pilot was too drunk to fly. It’s unlikely, however, that the pilot’s drinking was the result of lack of legroom in the cockpit either.
