JetBlue pilots allegedly drugged, raped female airline workers, lawsuit claims

National

 Two JetBlue pilots allegedly raped two female airline workers during a layover in Puerto Rico and left one of those victims with an STD, a new lawsuit alleges. 

According to federal court papers obtained by the New York Post, the lawsuit filed Monday alleges it happened May 9 after the crew members met the two pilots, Flight Officers Eric Johnson and Dan Watson, on the beach and shared drinks. 

“The beer was laced with a drug, and after that point, the rest of the night became a blur for [the women],” the lawsuit said.

The women — identified as Jane Doe 1 from Riverton, Utah, and Jane Doe 2 from Fort Worth, Texas, plus a third crew member with no specified hometown — then ended up back at the hotel with the pilots, according to The Post. 

That’s where Jane Doe 1 said Johnson allegedly raped her and the third crew member. 

After the assault, Johnson allegedly said, “Thank you for making my fantasy come true.”

According to The Post, the victims said they reported the rape to JetBlue but no action was ever taken.

The women are suing for at least $75,000 each in damages, plus attorney’s fees and costs. 

JetBlue told The Post that it could not comment on pending litigation.
