According to the Huffington Post, the woman claims the man rubbed her legs, kissed her hands and continued to sexually harass her.

When given the chance, Rafieyan disclosed the man's actions to the flight attendant who reportedly responded saying "I'm so sorry, but there was nothing we could do" admitting the man had done similar things to another flight attendant.

The Post reports United has a contract of carriage that says it can refuse to let a drunk passenger get on the plane.

After the incident she filed a complaint with the airline. She received a generic email and a $100 voucher in response.

Rafieyan escalated the incident and reported the man's name to the FBI's Criminal Investigative Division. After witnessing United's recent leggings and overbooking issues, the mother of three is now more concerned with how United handled the incident than the incident itself.
