Passenger claims Aer Lingus staff pulled her from toilet with pants still down

Passenger claims Aer Lingus staff pulled her from toilet with pants still down as flight about to take off

An Aer Lingus passenger has filed a lawsuit claiming she was injured after attendants pulled her out of an aeroplane toilet as her flight was about to take off.

American national Mary Oshana alleges she was dragged back to her seat while her pants were still below her knees, exposing her buttocks and genitalia to other passengers.

She also alleges her hip was injured during the incident and that she was the subject of laughter from other passengers.

The bizarre case was filed with a US court last week.

Was she trying to steal the toilet paper?

Spending 30 minutes in a tarmac delay at ORD isn't exactly an unusual scenario

Failure to follow instruction of crew, placards and notices...

I was on a KLM flight a few years ago, in an aisle seat, when the couple sitting beside me suddenly stood up and indicated that the lady by the window needed the lavatory.

This as we were literally turning onto the active runway (after a typically long trundle out to the Polderbaan) awaiting take off roll....

Sounds about right? Aer Lingus allegedly pulling the pants down of thousands of customers by not offering refunds and flying empty aircraft

Knowing the small space of the lav and the way the doors open, I'm curious as to how the attendants actually accomplished this.
