A New York man who says he was denied a seat on a five-hour jetBlue flight and was instead told to “‘hang out'” in the plane’s bathroom has sued the airline for $2 million, saying he suffered “‘extreme humiliation.'”
When Gokhan Mutlu arrived to check in for a jetBlue flight from San Diego to New York in February he was told the flight was full, according to the lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court.
But Mutlu was allowed to board after a jetBlue flight attendant agreed to give up her seat and travel in an airline employee “‘jump seat.'” It was not clear in the lawsuit whether the flight attendant was working.
