Female pilot sue Alaska Airlines after she was raped by flight captain

A pilot has filed a lawsuit against a carrier claiming that her male air ship skipper drugged and raped her amid a June 2017 work trip, as indicated by Week Facts.

Betty Pina, a previous military helicopter pilot, said the charged episode happened amid an overnight remain in Minneapolis.

She guarantees the pilot drugged her wine with an obscure substance and she woke up in his room, Week Facts reports.

“Also, I’m similar to, ‘Where am I’ and quickly I sit up and understand my bra and finish is on and I’m sliding off the bed.

It’s wet and I notice upchuck and the covers and sheets are gotten together toward the finish of the bed. What’s more, I understand my jeans and clothing are off,” Pina said.

Pina said her asserted assailant is as yet a pilot for Alaska Airlines and that she needs him let go.

Alaska Airlines declined Week Facts’ request for comment, but did offer a statement on the incident:

“This is an open and active investigation and we aren’t going to comment. What we can say is that we are taking this matter seriously,” company spokeswoman Ann Johnson said.

“The safety and well-being of our employees and guests is a top priority. It is our policy to withhold an employee from work during this type of investigation.”
