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."

let me get this straight..the man has already been prosecuted AND was convicted of the crime..may even be registered as a sex offender.. And this bitch STILL wants money 😧 I'm confused wtf should he be paid for?? fair enough if she was a stripper then you would feel jibbed..but if his already been charged that's called justice honey stop listening to your money hungry mother your not entitled to cash you silly bitch, a male jerking off in front of you is hardly traumatizing enough to stop you from working which I understand the bitch was in school at the time anyway..so charge the guy, fire the flight attendant and send the bitch home with nothing!

Normally I dont believe anyone who hires Allred but the guy was arrested and has been convicted so obviously she's telling the truth about what happened.

go home!    

Being a girl, being seated in the last row or flying on points had nothing to do with the way the airline responded to her, how stupid to include that in her statement. Gloria should have known better. At least she is finally representing someone we can root for, need we forget, "porn stars are people too!" Ugh. Disgusting story. Shame on the flight attendants.

This happened to me a few times when I was a teen. I think it was because I grew up in a big city. It was always men in cars. I can not imagine being stuck on a plane with the creep. Poor girl.

United Airlines, Get your checkbook out because you're going to be paying this piece of poop atty Gloria Alcrap lots of money. I know there are sick people in this world, but who would do something so sick on a plane? So nobody else saw this? Whatever. Gloria should sue herself and shut her crap mouth up.
