Tigerair passenger masturbates on flight

This is gross.

A passenger on a Tigerair flight has reported sitting next to a man who, having first asked if she had a boyfriend, then proceeded to masturbate for the duration of the flight.

The incident took place on a flight from Perth bound for Sydney last month.

According to the News.com, the perpetrator was said to be in his early 20s and donned a ponytail and half-shaved head.

The woman said he had told her she was beautiful and asked if she had a boyfriend.

He then began “rubbing his genitalia,” said the woman.

“He sat down, he had his sunglasses on, earphones in, smelled of alcohol, and the entire time, he was rubbing his genitalia,” the woman told News.com.

She added, “I was freaked out, it made me feel very uncomfortable.”

“I kept looking thinking, ‘is that actually happening’?”

She then told the cabin crew who told her they would check on her later.

As per News.com, the man touched the woman to get her attention and showed her a message he had written on his phone that read: “I’m sorry about before if that made you feel uncomfortable.”

 Tiger has since released a statement which said: “The safety, welfare, and comfort of our passengers is our top priority.”

“Tigerair has a zero-tolerance policy for inappropriate behaviour of any kind and we are currently reviewing the incident as a matter of priority.”

Yuck.

  1. It’s time to quit if this is all you can find as news for the day. Is there an Editor there who approves this rubbish? Perhaps the Editor wrote it? Oh dear..
