Zuckerberg said she reported the man to flight attendants, who seemed to make light of the situation while replying the man was a regular flyer on the route. "I guess his money means more than our safety?"

Zuckerberg tweeted Wednesday about her experience on a flight to Mexico, saying flight attendants dismissed her complaints. Immediately after boarding, the man began making "lewd" comments "about touching himself", and that he "kept asking me if I fantasized about the female business colleague I was traveling with", among other comments. She said she nearly accepted the offer until she decided against it, thinking she should not have to move since she was the one being harassed. "I'm the one that is being harassed!" "But oh well, don't take it personally, this guy just doesn't have a filter". She wrote that she was furious with the airline for "knowingly and willingly providing this man with a platform to harass women".

However, the matter may be resolved soon.

Randi Zuckerberg said she Complained about the man to flight attendants. "Once Ms Zuckerberg told flight attendants about this man's behaviour, they should have moved him to a different seat or ejected him from the airplane". He also made comments while being served alcoholic drinks. "Shouldn't he have been thrown off the plane?!"

"While it never should have happened in the first place, I am thankful that they are taking the situation seriously", wrote Zuckerberg on her updated Facebook post.

"Ironically, one of those comments about all the recent sexual harassment cases in the media, and how 'these Millennial women just aren't willing to give some booty to get a job anymore, '" she recalled.

More airline related fiasco emerged as someone as high profile as Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, alleged that sexual harassment in a flight of the Alaska Airlines. The execs told her they had started an investigation into the incident and that they had suspended the passenger's frequent flier privileges.
