    I find it amazing that the airline personnel would actually leave an airplane with someone in it. To me, that would seem to be some sort of severe violation as she could have done anything that she wanted while in the plane, such as tampering with the smoke detectors in the lavatory.

    They should have woken her up and if she did not wake up, they should have called medical personnel (EMS) to wake her up.

    She shoulda gotten in the pilots seat and been all like "No...MY plane" when the next captain showed up.

    Or turned on all the dials and knobs so when the next pilot cranked it up the windshield wipers, lights, and radio would be going full blast. I hate it when my kids do that to me in my vehicle.

    Of course they should have, but someone screwed up. I just don't see what the damages are. I guess making a fool out of yourself on national T.V. is worth $75K. She should have let her lawyer talk.

    A cleaning crew eventually roused her, but she was kept locked in the plane until federal officers were satisfied that she was not a terrorist, said the newspaper.


    a little more to the story...after she was found asleep...she was kept on plane against her will....she has a very good case if you ask me.

    This case is a lawyer's wet dream. By the time she gets to trial (if the airline is insane and does not settle) if she were my client, her hair will have fallen out from the stress, she will have been unable to work, have sex or go to school and her teeth will be rotten -- in short, she's about to make her favorite lawyer very rich.

    I can't help wondering why none of YOU can show this much initiative?
