An American Airlines flight attendant is suing the Fort Worth, Texas-based airline over what she describes as a physical fight with another crew member aboard a plane in June 2016, multiple sources have reported.
According to the Dallas Morning News the flight attendant, Kathy Ida Wolfe, claims in a lawsuit filed in federal court on Friday that the other crew member, Laura Powers, “maliciously dug her fingernails into my arm and slammed the door of a beverage cart on my arm.”
The Morning News reports that Wolfe said Powers “grabbed my scarf, choking me, and dragged me in the aisle and in front of the passengers.”
Newsweek reports that both Wolfe and Powers were employed by the airline in June 2016 and that Powers has been an employee of the airline since 1985.
