All Salvatore Bevivino wanted on his Virgin America flight from Philadelphia to San Francisco was a soda. But when two flight attendants instructed the 52-year-old Bay Area businessman to order with the touchscreen ordering process like everyone else, he allegedly replied, “My time is precious — you are here to serve me.” A third flight attendant ultimately brought Bevivino his soft drink, but according to a police report filed shortly after arrival, he proceeded to leave a little present for the crew in the plane’s lavatory. Gross. Grosser still: Bevivino is now suing the airline for $500,000 in damages because he says these allegations against him are totally false. [Chron]
