Can you believe this story?
In May, Mr. Gokhan Mutlu filed a lawsuit against JetBlue Airways for more than $2 million dollars.
Why? Well, he’d boarded the full New York to California flight using a “gift” ticket. During the flight he was ordered out of his seat by the Captain and told to either stand up or go hang out in the bathroom for the duration.
An off-duty JetBlue employee who had originally agreed to sit in the cockpit jump seat changed her mind and wanted to sit with the other passengers. The plane was full so the captain made his strange order to Mutlu since he only had a gift ticket. The off duty employee then took his seat.
Mutlu points out that during the flight he was unseat belted when the flight experienced turbulence and also during the landing!
I hope he wins his lawsuit. That’s just awful isn’t it?
