Wendi Williams, the woman whose reclined seat was repeatedly punched by a passenger on an American Airlines flight, is ready to pick another fight … this time with the airline!!!
Wendi tells us she met with an attorney Friday to discuss legal options she can take against AA … and she’s threatening the airline with a defamation lawsuit!
Williams is bristling over what an American Airlines rep told TMZ — that the whole seat-reclining incident started when she first reclined and knocked over the other passenger’s drink. Wendi claims it never happened. BTW, even if she did, it would have been an accident and no big deal.
She believes she was slandered when AA accused her of being disruptive, spilling a drink and also all the things that the flight attendant said to her on the plane — that she was the bad person in the dispute — all defamatory, Williams says. BUT … she’s not interested in suing the passenger, although she’s told us she’d like to see him prosecuted for assault.
Wendi also claims she was respectful to everyone else on the plane and didn’t make a scene.
