Gay Couple Sue Airline Over Dildo Taped To Luggage

Quote:
A gay couple is suing United-Continental Airlines after airport staff allegedly removed a dildo from their checked luggage and taped it to the top of their bags then sent it down the baggage pickup carousel.

Christopher Bridgeman and Martin Borger, from Virginia, believe they were targeted for humiliation by baggage handlers because of their sexuality.

They are seeking damages from the airline for invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

The “mortifying” incident allegedly occurred in May 2011 when Mr Bridgeman and Mr Borger were returning from a holiday in Costa Rica to their home of Norfolk, Virginia.

The couple, who have been together for nine years, had a 90-minute stop-off at George Bush International Airport in Houston to catch a connecting flight.

They collected their bags in Houston, passed through customs and then rechecked them for their flight to Virginia.

But when they came to reclaim their cases at Norfolk International airport, the defaced bag appeared on the carousel in front of other passengers from their flight.

"I was shocked, humiliated, embarrassed, horrified and confused because I didn't know what to do,” Mr Borger, 35, told the New York Daily News.

The purple sex toy had been removed from the bag and smeared with a “greasy, foul-smelling substance” and “taped prominently” to the top of the case with Continental Airlines branded tape, according to lawsuit documents.

Mr Bridgeman, 34, added: “To see all the expressions and how [people] were looking at us, we really felt completely powerless.”

The couple say there was no reason for the sex toy to have been removed and believe baggage handlers tampered with the case because there was a man’s name on the luggage tag.

United Airlines said that it conducted an investigation into the incident and found "no support" for the couple's claims, the New York Daily News reported.

Re: Gay Couple Sue Airline Over Dildo Taped To Luggage

I notice alot of gay couples, especially the men, look alike.

How stupid were the baggage people? They didn't even zip it back up. Didn't they realize the owner would claim it?

I hope there is forensic evidence and they are arrested for fucking with a customer's bag! Make an example out of the perp(s).

There should be fingerprints on the tape and it can be matched to the original source.

It is a hate crime! No accident here! They smeared smelly, gooey stuff all over it so they had to throw it away!

I'll have to think about that one. I thought it was a kind of self love.

My late gay brother used to believe everyone wanted him and everyone was gay.

I like people the opposite of myself - male, dark hair and dark eyes, usually.

They did not handle this well. If I saw my bag coming around the bend with my dildo taped to the top, my first words aloud would be, "what in the fuck??!! Who put that shit on my bag?! Where is the manager?!" *storms off with bag*
