Delta Airlines Complaint - Flight Attendant harassment
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Our trip from las to hsv via hsv was a disaster due to harassment by the male flight attendant. I touched his arm in a friendly manner when boarding the plane. He commented on how he could have me arrested for assault. I was shocked but continued on to my seat. I was coming down with a cold and asked for a kleenex. He stated I'd have to get one from the restroom. I asked for a napkin and hand sanitizer. No hand sanitizer says the flight attendant. He then accused me of deliberately sneezing or coughing on him. He was standing; I was seated. Since I was coming down with a cold, I'm sure my fellow passengers also preferred that I sneezed (how does one deliberately sneeze?) or cough into the aisle rather on them. The male flight attendant demanded identification and flight plans from my husband. He refused on the grounds that the information had already been provided. The male flight attendant then idly threatened that the plane could be diverted he and his wife could be de-boarded. Since we were seated separately, I de-boarded the plane in ATL first, and was whisked away into a secret room for interrogation, without anyone informing my husband. Delta security had called TSA and ATL police that an intoxicated woman was on board (found thru contacting ATL police dept). I was not drunk and was not offered an alcohol test. I was sick and ended up being stranded in ATL. They told me to pick up my baggage at ATL, but guess what, they sent it on to HSV. Some security... I'm very disappointed in Delta and would like a full investigation into their flight attendant action. Let's just go ahead and put air marshalls on flights and get rid of these power hungry amateurs. They could just put vending machines on board where we could get our own sprite and pretzels. I'm humiliated and disgusted.
