That’s one way to cope with the nightmare that is commercial air travel. Two frisky Delta passengers who decided to get a little too handsy in their seats aboard a cross-country flight are now facing fines after their amorous display freaked out their fellow passengers.
A male 28-year-old passenger the 48-year-old female passenger who was assigned to the seat next to him reportedly did not know each other prior to boarding the Sunday flight from Los Angeles to Detroit, Click 2 Detroit reported.
She was booked to continue on to Miami from Detroit, while he was going to catch a flight to Nashville. But you know what they say: true love always finds a way!
“The act itself is inappropriate in a public space,” disagreed one passenger, who was forced to sit inside the same metal tube as the couple while the woman performed oral sex on the man.
“There are children,” lamented another passenger. “There are families. There are seniors. These things should be respected.”
The aspiring Mile High Club members were handed citations as soon as they got off the plane, and now the incident has been handed over to the FBI for investigation since it took place in the air.
According to the agency, the couple could face anything from a felony up to a misdemeanor for the display. Charges could be filed as early as by the end of the week.
“If people will go so far as to disrespect themselves and disrespect you, something should be done,” another traveler said.
Delta has so far refused to comment on the incident.
