In a letter to executives of the Alaska airline, she explained and said that she was extremely uncomfortable with a man sitting near to her, he constantly made sexually explicit and made comments to her.

In a post on Facebook, she claims that flight attendants ignored her complaints and dismissed the offender because of his status as a frequent flier.

After I told them that I was extremely uncomfortable, they suggested to me that they could re-seat me in a middle seat at the very back of the plane, Which I nearly did until I realised why should I have to move?

The New York Times noted there is no centralized database where data about sexual harassment on airlines is collected. She said he "continued to make inappropriate and offensive comments" to her. "Shouldn't he have been thrown off the plane?!" she said.

"I'm even more furious with Alaska Airlines for knowingly and willingly providing this man with a platform to harass women".

She continued: "When I brought it to the flight attendants" attention, their response was that this guy was a frequent Alaska Airlines traveler on this exact route, and they have had to talk to him about his behavior in the past, but oh well, don't take it personally, this guy just doesn't have a filter. I guess his $ means more than our safety? "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".

On all these alleged Alaska Airline said on Twitter with their official account, "Recent events involving sexual harassment onboard our aircraft will not be tolerated". One man called the incident "insane and just beyond the pale", while another said she showed restraint because "a single photo or video of this aggressor would have quickly exposed him".

Two hours after her initial Tweet, Zuckerman said the company reached out to tell her they had temporarily suspended the man's travel privileges and will act in accordance with the investigation's findings.

"While it should never have happened in the first place, I am thankful that they are taking the situation seriously", she wrote in an update to her original Facebook post.

The airline said in part: "We want our guests to feel safe". It remains unclear why the passenger was not removed from the flight.
