Woman wakes up alone in plane after three hours of landing; sues airline
Saturday, 29th May 2010
Ginger McGuire said no one had awakened her when the plane landed more than three hours earlier. She said she paced the aisle for about 15 minutes early Tuesday until the locked door opened and police demanded identification.
“Waking up to an empty airplane and not being able to get out — it was very horrifying,” McGuire, 36, told reporters on Thursday as her lawyer announced a lawsuit.
McGuire said she simply fell asleep after a long trip that stretched from Detroit to suburban Washington and, finally, Philadelphia. She said the plane landed on Tuesday about 12:30 am EDT. United Airlines spokeswoman Sarah Massier declined comment because the incident has led to a lawsuit.
