Randi Zuckerberg has some strong words for Alaska Airlines

Randi Zuckerberg participates in a tech panel on Oct. 17 2017

She was offered a change of seat but she declined as she felt she shouldn't be the one to move.

Shortly after tweeting her complaint, Zuckerberg followed up to say the airline had reached out to inform her it had suspended the other passenger's privileges and that it is investigating the matter.

After I told them that I was extremely uncomfortable, they suggested to me that they could re-seat me in a middle seat at the very back of the plane, Which I nearly did until I realised why should I have to move? She was formerly an executive at Facebook, which her brother, Mr Mark Zuckerberg, co-founded.

During the three-hour flight, the man was given multiple alcoholic drinks, she said, and continued to harass her the entire time.

Zuckerberg further asserted that when she brought this to the notice of the flight attendants, they told her that this guy was a frequent flyer and that she should just ignore him.

Netanyahu called on the African leaders to "contend with the various challenges facing the region, including Islamic terrorism". Israel and Rwanda re-established ties in 1994 after they were broken in 1973 during the Yom Kippur War.

"Why is it the woman that needs to switch seats in this situation?" In a letter attached to her tweet, addressed to Alaska Airlines execs including CEO Brad Tilden, she recounted the incident in more detail saying that the man talked about "touching himself, kept asking me if I fantasized about the female business colleague I was traveling with, rated and commented on the women's bodies boarding the aircraft as they walked by us, and many more equally horrifying and offensive remarks". "As a company, we have zero tolerance for any type of sexual misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and crew members".

The FBI conducted 58 investigations of reported sexual assault on planes from January to September 2016, up from 40 during all of 2015, according to the bureau.

Zuckerberg wrote a lengthy email to the airline's leadership after leaving a flight feeling "disgusted" and "degraded." .

Alaska Airlines did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment. He said it appeared the airline failed to protect her from the unruly passenger.

Staff told the pair that the man, who frequently flew the same Alaska Airlines route, had demonstrated similar "behavior in the past, but oh well, don't take it personally, this guy just doesn't have a filter".
