Two unidentified JetBlue flight attendants have filed a lawsuit against the airline and two of their pilots for allegedly drugging and raping them during a layover in Puerto Rico last year, HuffPo reports.
The suit alleges that pilots Eric Johnson and Dan Watson approached the two crew staffers and another woman, who also worked for the company, while on the beach on May 9. After informing them that they worked for JetBlue, the men offered them beers from a lunch bag, which was allegedly laced with drugs. The women drank them, and found themselves back at the Intercontinental Hotel in San Juan with Johnson and Watson where the suit states, “the rest of the night became a blur for [the women].”
One of the women remembered waking up in a hazy state as Johnson was raping her. “[Her] flashes of memory included Johnson having sexual intercourse with the other [third] crewmember who was also under the influence of the drugs,” the suit alleges. The pilots allegedly did not sexually assault the other woman because she started to vomit and her nausea became “a turnoff.”
The suit claims that Johnson concluded their horrific ordeal by telling the two women who were raped, “Thank you for making my fantasy come true.”
When the unidentified woman, who hailed from Utah, returned home, she tested positive for the human papillomavirus (HPV), which the suit alleges, “she could only have contracted from defendant Johnson.” Both women in the lawsuit reported the incident to JetBlue's corporate headquarters where court docs state “no corrective action was ever taken again.”
While JetBlue declined to comment on pending litigation, the airline maintains that they take “allegations of violent or inappropriate behavior very seriously and investigates such claims thoroughly.”
The plaintiffs are demanding at least $75,000 in damages, as well as additional money to cover their lawyer fees.
