Airlines Employee ‘Took Number From Luggage Tag And Followed Woman Onto Flight


Airlines Employee ‘Took Number From Luggage Tag And Followed Woman Onto Flight

She’s now going through a lawsuit.

Female flight passenger of American Airlines, Ashley Barno, has filed a lawsuit against the company for sexual harassment by an employee and more. She was actually spammed with more than 100 text messages on the flight and was even followed by a stranger up the plane.

The employee, Ahmad, said she was ‘gorgeous in her gray top’ and explained how he got her information. He stole it from the luggage tag and began sending creepy texts to her.

She was on her way to Chicago O’Hare and boarded her flight at San Diego’s International Airport in April last year. One text that shocked her was, “I am on board now. Are you going to Chicago too??” He continued by saying he could offer her free access to lounge and flights.

This is the series of texts exchanged between the perpetrator and Ashley.

Ashley spoke to NBC San Diego to tell her story, “The whole time I kept asking him, ‘Who are you? How do you know who I am? How’d you get my info? Just knowing that he knew what I looked like, and that we were in an enclosed plane and that there’s no way out, like really, really scared me.

“He had too much information on people, and what he did was not OK, and not acceptable at all,” she added. She also told him to stop and had to tell another flight attendant regarding this incident. That attendant revealed that this is not Ahmad’s first inappropriate contact with customers.

Ashley adds that fact to the lawsuit and describes that American Airlines “knew of its employee’s propensity to inappropriately contact its customers yet continued to retain him as an employee.” It continued, “American Airlines did not do a sufficient job in hiring and supervising employees to keep its customers safe from sexual harassment and stalking.”
