Randi put out a letter complaining about her 'disgusting' experience to Alaska Airlines CEO. "Feeling disgusted and degraded after an @AlaskaAir flight where the passenger next to me made repeated lewd sexual remarks. The flight attendants told me he was a frequent flier, brushed off his behavior & kept giving him drinks. I guess his $ means more than our safety?" she tweeted.

She said flight staff offered that she could move from first class to a seat in the back of the plane. "Why should I have to move? I am the one that is being harassed!" she said in the letter.

Two executives from Alaska Airlines assured her that they are conducting an investigation and have temporarily suspended the co-passenger's travel privileges.

"Recent events involving sexual harassment onboard our aircraft will not be tolerated. We are committed to finding a solution to pervasive societal problems," stated the airlines.
