Alaska Airlines says it's investigating a claim that flight attendants allowed a passenger to sexually harass a former Facebook executive on a flight.
Entrepreneur, investor, and best selling author, Randi Zuckerberg, who is also Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's sister, took to social media Wednesday to detail her recent flight between Los Angeles and Mazatlan, Mexico.
She said she was extremely uncomfortable with the man sitting near her who constantly made sexually explicit and lewd comments to her and others in the First Class passenger area, all while being served several alcoholic drinks.
Zuckerberg said she reported it to flight attendants, who replied that the man was a regular flyer on the route and seemed to make light of the situation.
Feeling disgusted & degraded after an @AlaskaAir flight where the passenger next to me made repeated lewd sexual remarks. The flight attendants told me he was a frequent flier, brushed off his behavior & kept giving him drinks. I guess his $ means more than our safety?

The airline said they're revoking the man's travel privileges while conducting a full investigation.
UPDATE: I just got off the phone with two executives from @AlaskaAir who informed me that they are conducting an investigation and have temporarily suspended this passenger’s travel privileges. Thank you for taking this seriously.— Randi Zuckerberg (@randizuckerberg) November 30, 2017
