2 JetBlue Crew Members Claim They Were Drugged By Pilots During San Juan Layover
Two JetBlue Crew members are claiming they were drugged and one raped by pilots during a layover in San Juan according to a recent lawsuit.
Going By Jane Doe #1 of Riverton, Utah, and Jane Doe #2 of Fort Worth, Texas, in the lawsuit, the women said they were given drug-laced beer by the pilots and the rest of the night was a blur. The lawsuit also claims that this pilot “intentionally” gave the first woman, Jane Doe #1, a sexually transmitted disease.
The lawsuit says that the drugging and assault that allegedly occurred during the layover and the company’s alleged failure to respond adequately to their complaints violated laws against sex discrimination, gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and a hostile work environment.
Jet Blue would not directly respond to the suit and instead responded, “We work to create a respectful workplace for all our crew members where they feel welcome and safe”.
According to the suit, the women were hanging out at the beach when the men approached them saying they were pilots for JetBlue. They offered the women beers from a cooler. The women say after drinking the beers that the night was foggy and Jane Doe #1 claims to waking up to being raped. Jane Doe #2 said she believes the pilots were intending to rape her too but she was vomiting. The third flight attendant, not part of the suit, laid next to them and was allegedly drugged as well.
The women are seeking “an amount to be determined at the time of trial” as well as punitive damages, attorneys’ fees and other costs.
