    Man says JetBlue made him sit on toilet

    NEW YORK - A New York City man is suing JetBlue Airways Corp. for more than $2 million because he says a pilot made him give up his seat to a flight attendant and sit on the toilet for more than three hours on a flight from California.

    Gokhan Mutlu, of Manhattan's Inwood section, says in court papers the pilot told him to "go 'hang out' in the bathroom" about 90 minutes into the San Diego to New York flight because the flight attendant complained that the "jump seat" she was assigned was uncomfortable, the lawsuit said.

    Mutlu was traveling on a a "buddy pass," a standby travel voucher that JetBlue employees give to friends, from New York to San Diego on Feb. 16, and returned to New York on Feb. 23, the lawsuit said....................

    Re: Man says JetBlue made him sit on toilet

    So... he's suing becuse he had a free ticket and had to sit on a toilet? I've PAID for a ticket and wanted to sit in the bathroom... usually it had to do with the mile-high club, but still.

    What a whiner.

    I think he might have a case:

    When the aircraft hit turbulence and passengers were directed to return to their seats, but "the plaintiff had no seat to return to, sitting on a toilet stool with no seat belts," court papers say.
    I would imaging that there are FAA regulations in place dictating what a commercial airline has to provide its passengers.
    I am certain that seat belts and emergency oxygen would be on the list.
    I think that he will win this one hands down.

    Um, why didn't he just sit in the jump seat that was vacated by the flight attendant?

    Obviously if she took his seat because her jump seat was uncomfortable, then the jump seat would have been unoccupied.

    Also, I've never been on a flight where a flight attendant sat in a seat the entire flight. Usually they sit during take off & landing only, on a short flight. Why couldn't he sit in it then?

    I'm guessing she was an off duty flight attendent, who would get the seat before someone with a buddy pass would.
    The thing I don't get though is she KNOWS what a jump seat is like if she's a flight attendant so why would she agree to sit it in and then decide otherwise during the flight.
    She had to have sat in them before during take offs and landings and such.

    Either way, the idiot sat in the bathroom while the jump seat was unoccupied during the flight.

    If you read the article is says that he was not allowed to sit in the jump seat.

    The pilot told him 1 1/2 hours into the five-hour flight that he would have to relinquish the seat to the flight attendant, court papers say. But the pilot said that Mutlu could not sit in the jump seat because only JetBlue employees were permitted to sit there, the lawsuit said.

    When Mutlu expressed reluctance to go sit in the bathroom, the pilot, who was not named in the lawsuit, told him that "he was the pilot, that this was his plane, under his command that (Mutlu) should be grateful for being on board," the lawsuit said.
