Woman Sues Airline For Not Waking Her Up When Plane Landed

I meant to post on this yesterday and now it's making national news.

A Michigan woman who fell asleep on a United Express flight to Philadelphia says she woke up and was shocked to find she was alone on the plane.

Ginger McGuire said no one had awakened her when the plane landed more than three hours earlier. She said she paced the aisle for about 15 minutes early Tuesday until the locked door opened and police demanded identification.

"Waking up to an empty airplane and not being able to get out - it was very horrifying," McGuire, 36, told reporters Thursday as her lawyer announced a lawsuit.

...McGuire's attorney, Geoffrey Feiger, said his law firm filed a lawsuit against United and Trans States, alleging negligence, false imprisonment and distress. McGuire lives in Ferndale, a Detroit suburb.

"For a crew to leave her there and lock her is beyond a gross abuse," Fieger said.

Feiger btw is the pimple on the butt of humanity that use to represent Jack "Dr. Death" Kervorkian.

It's an outrage that almost a year and half into Obama's term as President adults are still be subjected to the horror of having to take responsibility for waking up. When will America catch up to the rest of the civilized world and institute Comprehensive Alarm Clock Reform legislation?

McGuire was just on FNC with Jane Skinner and Skinner made her look like a fool. She had no answer to why it wasn't her responsibility to get her lazy ass off the plane or even what was in the suit in terms of damages being asked for.

If anyone sees the video of this, let me know, it was cringe inducing but oh such an enjoyable take down of this fool.

If the airline's attorneys were watching they must have been laughing their asses off at the thought of getting this woman on the stand.

On a somewhat more serious note, for security reasons cabin crews really shouldn't let people alone in planes like that.


"1sttofight " found the video.
