I am ...distressed that the airline made no attempt to ensure my safety or comfort during this incident," the woman said in the letter.

"Shortly after lunch was served and the lights were switched off, ...another passenger walked to my seat, completely inebriated. He unzipped his pants, relieved himself and continued to expose me to his private parts," the letter read further.
