A United passenger has claimed that she was forced to pee into a cup while on a flight, which she describes as “a completely humiliating situation. There was people all around — you know, strangers.”
United has essentially denied that the woman’s version of the story is true.
“Customer safety is always our first priority. Initial reports from the Mesa Airlines flight attendants indicate that Ms. Harper attempted to visit the lavatory on final descent and was instructed to remain seated with the seat belt fastened per FAA regulations. The situation as described by Ms. Harper and our employees is upsetting for all involved. We have reached out to Ms. Harper and our flying partner Mesa Airlines to better understand what occurred.”
A further addendum stated that “at no point during the flight did flight attendants suggest that Ms. Harper use cups instead of the lavatory.”
The woman claims that the incident took place one day after the incident where the man was forcibly removed from a flight.
