Southwest Airlines is vigorously denying allegations that pilots placed a camera in an airplane lavatory.Images from the camera were allegedly viewed by an iPad in the cockpit, according to a lawsuit flight attendant Renee Steinaker recently filed.Steinaker says she noticed the iPad on a flight from Pittsburgh to Phoenix in February 2017. A pilot allegedly told her it was part of new security measures the airline was taking, but Steinaker had doubts and filed a complaint with management."They led her to believe that she and others had been filmed — had been videotaped if you will — while they were using the lavatory," Ronald L.M. Goldman, the attorney representing Steinaker, told the Arizona Republic. "It's really hard to imagine a more outrageous kind of conduct."Steinaker claims that, as a result of reporting the incident, she has been retaliated against. Her husband, who is also a Southwest flight attendant, is making similar claims."In my view, Southwest Airlines has treated this as 'how dare they report it' rather than 'thank you for letting us know,'" Goldman said.In a written statement provided to the Arizona Republic, Southwest disputed the notion that the pilots had placed a camera in the lavatory."Southwest will vigorously defend the lawsuit," the statement said. "When the incident happened two years ago, we investigated the allegations and addressed the situation with the crew involved. We can confirm from our investigation that there was never a camera in the lavatory; the incident was an inappropriate attempt at humor which the company did not condone."
