Elly Shariat immediately posted on Twitter during the flight as she began realising what the man next to her was doing.
“Uhh, South West Air, we have an issue,” she wrote on the platform, before detailing how the man next to her was watching porn, without headphones and had twice shaken “in the throes of his orgasmic bliss”.
Uhh @SouthwestAir we have an issue. I’ve spent this entire flight sitting next to a guy who has his iPad open on the tray table, watching porn, WITHOUT using headphones or anything, and twice now his body has started shaking in the throes of his orgasmic bliss. I’m so disgusted. pic.twitter.com/3an0ukXXyt

“I’m so disgusted,” she added.
Speaking about the incident to Fox News, the woman claims when the man was “finished”, he used his left hand to grip her right forearm.
“It made it clear to me how strong he was, given how forceful his grip was, which is why I felt uncomfortable and reached out to SW on Twitter — hoping they’d ask my seat number and notify someone — because I didn’t know if he’d try to physically do anything else if I went to take a photo or video, nor did I want to find out,” she told the news outlet.
As she was in the air, the airline responded to her tweets, instructing her to ask the cabin crew for help.
This is never something that we want to have happen on our flights. Please be sure to reach out to one of the Flight Attendants onboard your flight. -Heather
