The morbidly obese EVA passenger who allegedly forced a cabin crew member to wipe his butt after using the business class lavatory with the door open and then moaned in pleasure as she reluctantly complied with his unusual demand, has reportedly been found dead in a Thai resort described in media accounts as “known for its prostitution and seedy nightlife.”
An American accused of traumatizing an EVA Air flight attendant who acquiesced to his bizarre lavatory demands has reportedly died at a Thai resort destination famed for its cozy relationship with the sex trade. The morbidly obese flyer who gained infamy after allegedly demanding that a cabin crew member wipe his butt after he used the toilet reportedly succumbed to pre-existing health issues.
According to the U.K. tabloid newspaper The Sun, EVA Air officials learned of the nightmare passenger’s passing as they were following through with a promise to ban the creepy flyer from the airline. While attempting to inform the unpleasant air traveler that he was no longer welcome on the airline’s flights, it was discovered that he had died in March of this year.
The unidentified U.S. national made headlines in January after an EVA flight attendant went public with her version of events. Two of the cabin crew members who fell victim to the flyer’s outrageous behavior remain on leave after reporting that the events left them traumatized.
The messy incident occurred during a Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TPE) flight. The obese passenger, who had upon boarding already demanded to be provided with three economy class seats (due to his large size), reportedly requested assistance using the lavatory during the more than 14-hour-long flight. The at first simple request slowly morphed into something more akin to exhibitionism, rather than the needs of a passenger with mobility issues.
According to an account from the flight attendant involved, the seedy flyer gradually made additional demands until she found herself in the uncomfortable position of having to clean his private areas. The crew member later wrote that the incident left her feeling “dirty.”
“I promised to help you go to the toilet, not to wipe your butt,” the flight attendant recounted in a social media post, writing that the passenger continued to badger her, “You promised me … what can I do if no one wipes my butt? Do you want me to stay in this toilet?”
In addition to pushing the cabin crew member into taking care of a very personal problem, the abusive passenger is also said to have insisted on using the business class cabin lavatory with the door open, saying he couldn’t fit in the economy class lavatory and “couldn’t breathe” with the door shut.
“I told him we couldn’t help him, but he started yelling,” the flight attendant recalled. “He told me to go in there immediately and threatened to relieve himself on the floor. As the passenger’s genitals were now exposed, one of my colleagues brought a blanket, which I used to cover his modesty. But he very angrily slapped my hand away, saying he didn’t want it and only wanted me to remove his underwear so he could use the toilet.”
The flight attendant eventually donned latex gloves and agreed to clean the passenger’s private areas. According to one co-worker, the oversized job didn’t exactly go smoothly. “He said: ‘Oh, mmm, deeper, deeper,’ and then accused my chief attendant of not properly cleaning his backside, requesting that she do it again,” another flight attendant on the plane reported.
Adding insult to injury, the man is said to have “moaned with pleasure” throughout the unpleasant task. When using the restroom later, on the ground, however, the shameless flyer allegedly declined the assistance of a male attendant who was made available to help him with his very special needs.
