Alaska Airlines to investigate Randi Zuckerberg's report of sexual harassment on plane

Zuckerberg complained about the man to the flight attendants but was told he was a frequent flier, downplaying his behavior, kept giving him drinks and told her not to take the harassment "personally". "I guess his $ means more than our safety?" she tweeted.

The Silicon Valley entrepreneur to social media to detail her recent flight between Los Angeles and Mazatlan, Mexico and explained her ordeal and how the flight attendants brushed off her co-passenger's behaviour. "While it never should have happened in the first place, I am thankful that they are taking the situation seriously", she said.

At one point, she claims the man made a reference on the ongoing sexual harassment scandals in the media, commenting: 'These Millennial women just aren't willing to give some booty to get a job anymore'.

She said a flight attendant offered to move her to another seat in the back of the plane, but she declined.

However, the matter may be resolved soon.

Alaska Airlines tweeted that it has launched an investigation and has "revoked this passenger's travel privileges pending the outcome of that investigation".

The man also rated and commented on the bodies of other women boarding the aircraft as they walked by, according to Zuckerberg. "Once Ms Zuckerberg told flight attendants about this man's behaviour, they should have moved him to a different seat or ejected him from the airplane".

Zuckerberg said she was furious at the passenger for making her uncomfortable and furious at herself for not causing more of a scene at the time. "Shouldn't he have been thrown off the plane?!" she said.

Ray Lane, the Operational Communications Manager for Alaska Airlines spokeswoman, told the Daily News the company is launching an investigation into Zuckerman's claims.

Ms Zuckerberg updated her Facebook post after she talked to the Alaska Airlines executives.

Bobbie Egan continued: "The safety and well-being of our guests is our number one priority".

We've reached out to Alaska Airlines for further comment. "As a company, we have zero tolerance for any type of sexual misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and crew members", the airline reportedly said.
