United Airlines

Accused of Exposing Girl

To Masturbating Passenger

United Airlines has just been accused of allowing a male passenger to masturbate next to a 17-year-old girl on board one of its flights last year.

Monica Amestoy -- now 18 -- has filed a lawsuit against UA, claiming she was flying back to L.A. from a high school debate tournament in New York last October when the incident occurred.

According to Amestoy, represented by Gloria Allred, a male passenger seated across the aisle from her exposed his penis to her during the flight ... and masturbated.

Amestoy says she complained to a flight attendant multiple times -- and the flight attendant did nothing to stop the man from continuing his behavior ... she wasn't moved, and the passenger wasn't addressed in any way.

Amestoy says the man briefly stopped masturbating while the flight attendant was nearby, but quickly resumed once the flight attendant left.

According to Allred, the man in question has since been arrested, prosecuted, and convicted in connection with the alleged crime. Allred says the man has also been ordered to register as a sex offender.

Amestoy is suing for negligence, false imprisonment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress -- demanding unspecified damages. A rep for United Airlines tells us, "The comfort and security of our customers is our top priority, and we will closely review this complaint when we receive it."

If Gloria is suing someone I tend to side with that person because she is nothing more than a media whore.

We could do without the parents chiming in... we got it. I hope Monica sues the panties off of United. I'm going to guess that United issued a boilerplate non-apology/apology letter to her and a ONE free DOMESTIC fly anywhere ticket (w/restrictions) to her. Outfits like that needs to be sued, It's the only language they understand... so for this ONE TIME I'm behind Allred on this media circus.

Wherever there's a weird sex case, there's a brightly colored blazer and big hairdo nearby.

A new twist on the mile high club.


I find it very strange the flight attendant did nothing. I worked for United and these stews don't mess around.

The 17 year old should have gotten up and sat in the stewardess seats and told one of them to sit with the pervert. Most 17 year olds we see would have verbally cussed and belittled the pervert so bad, he would have stopped his activity out of shame. Who is she? Mary Poppins?

She looks like a little Tonya Harding so I can understand how the man got aroused.

This girl is a butterface. No way i could keep it up anywhere near here. This is a money grab. Bet they tried extorting United Airlines, and they told them to go pound sand.

Holy Crap TMZ. Did you really have to go back to 1989 to get the United Airlines logo?
