And after 8 pages (some of these guys MUST post on "PWI"!)...this appeared to be the most reasonable argument to me:
"I'd argue that the contract of carriage applies because the plane itself is private property. As the plane is their property, they can set reasonable rules to the access of their property. They, of course, cannot deny transport to anyone paying a valid fare and in compliance with the law (ie presenting one's self for boarding while obviously intoxicated would violate laws against public drunkenness and the airline could legally deny boarding)".
"Government regulation is primarily for the safety of the planes and those who fly in them. Without regulation, there would be no orderly system in which people could enjoy their right to transit US airspace. Thus some regulation is needed".
Now...was touching Ms. Castillo's vagina "reasonable"?
MOST hell no...and she is within her right's to complain.
