John TravoltaDee PlaneProves I Wasn't In L.A.

John Travolta was not in L.A. the day a masseur claims the actor sexually assaulted him ... in fact, Travolta flew to New York the night before ... TMZ has learned.
We checked flight records which show Travolta's jet took off from Los Angeles International Airport at 8:21 PM on January 15, 2012 and landed at 3:59 AM the next morning in Westchester County, NY.
The masseur's lawyer claims Travolta met the masseur in question at the Beverly Hills Hotel at 10 AM on January 16, but the flight records show differently.
We've also learned Travolta stayed at The Greenwich Hotel in NYC on the 16th. We posted pics of Travolta taken for a wardrobe fitting on the 16th in the late afternoon -- pics that were taken for his upcoming movie. Notice the photo showing the hotel bathroom ... the tile floor, the marble on the walls and the bathroom door match the photos in which Travolta appears.
Travolta also went to Mr. Chow in NYC in the evening on the 16th.
So the actor was firmly ensconced in The Big Apple during the time frame the masseur claims the assault occurred.
Costume Designer Says
Masseur's Claim is Bogus
A costume designer who shot the photos of John Travolta at a New York hotel says there is no way in hell Travolta met up with a masseur in L.A.. the same day.
Denise Wingate, who worked as the costume designer for Travolta's movie, "Killing Season," tells TMZ she was in the actor's New York suite at The Greenwich Hotel for most of the afternoon on January 16 -- the day a masseur claims Travolta sexually accosted him at a Beverly Hills hotel.
Wingate says she took a bunch of pictures -- including the ones TMZ posted -- during the session that lasted around 3 1/2 hours. She also says 4 other people were in the room with Travolta and herself.
Wingate, who also fitted Robert De Niro at the hotel the same day, says Travolta was at the hotel almost the entire day, running his lines for the movie.
As we reported, we also obtained the flight plan which shows Travolta flew out of L.A. the evening of January 15 and landed in New York in the early hours of the 16th.
Wingate says any notion that Travolta was in Beverly Hills on the 16th "is absolutely absurd."
