(Newser) – The women sipped from a can of beer, and the "rest of the night became a blur." So reads a lawsuit filed Monday by two JetBlue flight attendants, who claim they were drugged and one of them sexually assaulted—by JetBlue pilots. The suit describes Jane Doe 1 of Riverton, Utah, and Jane Doe 2 of Fort Worth, Texas, as being in San Juan, Puerto Rico, for a May 9, 2018, overnight layover. After arriving on the flight from Washington, DC, the women and another female co-worker went to the beach, where they met Dan Watson and Eric Johnson, who they learned were JetBlue pilots. There, the suit claims they were offered an opened beer from a lunch bag by Johnson, and that all three women sipped it. They allege that beer was laced. More:

  • The next thing Jane Doe 1 recalls was waking up in a bed at the InterContinental Hotel as she was being raped by Johnson. She alleges the third female crew member, who is not part of the lawsuit, was in the bed and subsequently raped, and that the pilot said, "Thank you for making my fantasy come true."
