Renee Steinaker Lawsuit

A lawsuit filed by Renee Steinaker alleged that she was working on a flight between Pittsburgh and Phoenix when asked to enter the cabin so that one of the two pilots could leave and use the bathroom. The request was not unusual, because Southwest policy requires that two people be in the cabin at all times, according to Steinaker’s lawsuit.

Crew member Renee Steinaker revealed the shocking incident, which allegedly took place on a Southwest Airlines flight between Pittsburgh and Phoenix, in a lawsuit against the airline.

The lawsuit alleged that, on February 27, 2017, Steinaker was working on flight 1088 when the pilot Captain Terry Graham asked him to enter the cabin in order to use the bathroom. Southwest Airlines’ policy requires two crew members in the cabin at all times.

  • Steinaker said the incident occurred during a 2017 flight, when a pilot went to the bathroom. The airline’s policy requires that two people be in the cabin at all times, so Steinaker entered.
  • He noticed an iPad mounted on the windshield that broadcast what appeared to be a live broadcast from the plane’s bathroom, which the pilot had just entered, Steinaker’s lawsuit said.
  • She claimed that the co-pilot who remained in the cabin seemed “in panic” and said the video was part of a new top-secret security measure. She did not believe him and reported the incident to the airline.
  • Steinaker and her husband, who is also a flight attendant, alleged that managers have harassed and monitored them in a “threatening and strange way” since they reported the incident.
  • Southwest Airlines did not comment on the lawsuit, but told The Arizona Republic in a statement that it does not place cameras in the bathrooms.
