American Airlines court filing claims all air passengers should know they are being secretly video recorded when using airplane lavatories (washrooms)
05/26/2024 // Ethan Huff // Views

An American Airlines (AA) flight attendant named Estes Carter Thompson III, 36, is the subject of a lawsuit claiming he recorded or tried to record a nine-year-old girl using the lavatory (washroom) on a flight. In response, AA is claiming that the little girl is to blame because all passengers young and old should simply assume that they are being recorded during AA flights whenever they relieve themselves.

The incident occurred on a flight back in September 2023 when Thompson, the child perpetrator and alleged pedophile, was caught in possession of recordings depicting four other minor female passengers using lavatories on AA flights. AA's lawyer insists the young girl in question should have known that Thompson was filming her in the nude while she went to the bathroom.

This outrageous suggestion, which shows what a dirty and likely pedophile-filled company AA is, was mentioned in legal documents that the attorney in question filed on May 20 as part of an ongoing lawsuit the little girl's family filed against the airline.

Thompson is charged with one count of attempted sexual exploitation of children and one count of possession of child pornography depicting a prepubescent minor.

American Airlines denounces filing

At the time of Thompson's arrest, Acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy wrote that such an incident should never, ever occur on an airplane, especially to an innocent child who is traveling with her family.

"The deeply disturbing conduct alleged here is something no parent or child should ever have to worry about when they travel," Levy said.

"Mr. Thompson allegedly used his position to prey on and surreptitiously record innocent children, including unaccompanied minors, while in a vulnerable state aboard flights he was working."

AA, meanwhile, says the victim is to blame because she should have known, somehow, that a device was recording her while she used the lavatory.

"Any injuries or illnesses alleged to have been sustained by Plaintiff, Mary Doe, were proximately caused by Plaintiff's own fault and negligence, were proximately caused by Plaintiff's use of the compromised lavatory, which she knew or should have known contained a visible and illuminated recording device," reads one of the many legal defenses put forth by AA's lawyers.

Paul Llewellyn, the lawyer of the little girls' family, says his clients are "absolutely livid" with the airline's legal defense, which sure makes AA look like an airline run by filthy perverts, though the company did backtrack somewhat after news spread about the filing.

"I was absolutely shocked and I think it's outrageous," Llewellyn commented.

"The idea that American Airlines and its lawyers would blame a nine-year-old for being filmed, in my opinion, just smacks of desperation and depravity. What on earth is American Airlines thinking by adopting such a strategy?"

The trip on which the incident occurred went from Charlotte, N.C., to Boston, Mass. Thompson was caught red-handed by a 14-year-old girl as he tried to secretly film the prepubescent girl using the lavatory, triggering the launch of a federal probe into Thompson and his depraved state of existence.

After NBC10 ran a segment about the fiasco, AA responded by trying to claim that it does not support the filings of its own attorneys:

"Our outside legal counsel retained with our insurance company made an error in this filing. The included defense is not representative of our airline and we have directed it be amended this morning. We do not believe this child is at fault and we take the allegations involving a former team member very seriously."

The airline industry in on track to lose big time not only from cases like this but also from the Boeing debacle. Learn more at
