Two JetBlue pilots allegedly drugged three women crew members while they were on a layover in Puerto Rico and also left one of the women with an STD, as reported by a new lawsuit. The pilots also reportedly raped two of the women while the third was left vomiting after being drugged. 

The Brooklyn suit alleges that the crew members had met pilots Eric Johnson and Dan Watson on the beach in San Juan on May 9, 2018. According to the Washington Post, the women had begun drinking beers with the men when they learned that they were pilots with JetBlue. The lawsuit which was filed on Monday read, "The beer was laced with a drug, and after that point, the rest of the night became a blur for [the women]."

Both women and a third crew member found themselves at the Intercontinental Hotel along with the pilots. The women have chosen to identify themselves as Jane Doe 1 who is from Riverton, Utah and Jane Doe 2 who hails from Fort Worth, Texas. The lawsuit revealed, "Johnson was on top of [Jane Doe 1] raping her. [Jane Doe 1] felt the influence of the drug that [Johnson] laced the beer with, and was unable to react to the situation, but was simply aware that it was happening."


"[Her] flashes of memory included Johnson having sexual intercourse with the other crewmember who was also under the influence of the drugs," the lawsuit continues.

Johnson even thanked the woman for "making my fantasy come true". Jane Doe 2 revealed that as a result of the drugs, she became very ill and was continuously throwing up. "Johnson and Watson drugged [Jane Doe 2] and intended to rape [her] but did not when [she] began vomiting which was a turnoff," the suit adds. 

While on a return flight to Newark, the women reported feeling bouts of nausea and vomiting. "The three of them looked up the symptoms of rape drugs and found their symptoms were consistent with having been drugged," the suit states.

The two women who were raped also spoke about the events and "expressed to each other that they were stunned by what had happened." Jane Doe 1 also accused Johnson of leaving her with HPV which is the easiest sexually transmitted disease.

The women also shared that the airline did not take any action against the pilots after they had been notified of the sickening incident. The women's attorney Abraham Melamed shared, "What happened to my clients is truly horrific, and Jet Blue's failure to take appropriate action is appalling. The pilots were not suspended. They were not put on any sort of leave. They continued to work to this day without any ramifications."


In a statement emailed to The Post, JetBlue shared that it could not comment on any ongoing litigation but it took "allegations of violent or inappropriate behavior very seriously and investigates such claims thoroughly."
