There are more sexual assaults than gets reported in the media, according to a  new report.

The Dallas News is reporting that a Colorado woman who claims she was raped last summer during an American Airlines flight is suing the carrier after it offered her $5,000 to settle.

On June 16, 2017, Aubrey Lane boarded the red-eye American Airlines Flight 1280 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport en route to New York’s JFK International Airport to see her family.

When she got up to use the restroom several hours into the flight, the 31-year-old real estate professional claims she was followed and soon trapped in the lavatory and assaulted by an intoxicated male passenger who had been sitting next to her.

American Airlines has called it a ‘nuisance claim.’
