Two passengers on a Detroit bound Delta Airlines flight used their chance encounter on the plane to join the elusive Mile High Club on the four hour flight from Los Angeles.
Sparks must have been flying on that particular day when two total stranger start getting it on in a public place such as an airplane.
The entire story was reported in several news outlets including Click On Detroit (access here).
A man and a woman were busted Sunday on a Delta flight from Los Angeles to Detroit. Officials said the two were total strangers before boarding the plane.
A woman was arrested on the airplane for performing oral sex on a man while they were in their seats. The 48-year-old woman was heading to Nashville, while the 28-year-old man was heading to Miami.
“The act itself is inappropriate in a public space,” one traveler said.
The flight was heading from Los Angeles to Detroit, and the passengers were connecting on separate flights. The two were strangers before the flight, officials said.
“There are children,” another passenger said. “There are families. There are seniors. These things should be respected.”
Both people were issued citations, and the investigation was handed over to the FBI.
FBI agents said the incident is still under investigation, and the two could be charged with anything from a misdemeanor to a felony.
“If people will go so far as to disrespect themselves and disrespect you, something should be done,” a traveler said.
The FBI said charges could be issued in the case as early as Tuesday. …
The FBI is involved in this case because they are the responsible federal authority to investigate crimes on aircraft in the U.S. otherwise it would sound somewhat absurd that an institution of such caliber deals with such a petty incident.
But why was only the woman arrested, shouldn’t it be both people that are involved in this incident? You can likely see this as indecent exposure in the least since all this took place in the seat, not in the washroom.
Not sure why they chose to engage in their act this public, right in the cabin. It would have been possible to be a little more discreet but I guess they chose whatever method to get the job done.
U.S. laws are quite harsh when it comes to these things which admittedly sounds quite strange to a European to face felony charges for having intercourse on the airplane. In the end it’s not like they were standing in the aisle and performing in everyone’s full view.
