Shortly after takeoff on an eight-hour flight from London to Washington DC, a woman says she started receiving disturbing messages on the in-flight system.
Jessica Van Meir, 24, was travelling for business on Saturday and told CNN she got up to use the bathroom early in the flight and started receiving the messages when she returned to her seat.

Virgin Atlantic’s in-flight entertainment system allows passengers to watch movies, TV, play games and send messages to people in other seats.
The unwelcome messages appeared to come from a group of passengers sitting behind her, who she passed on the way to the restroom.
One message named her seat number specifically and called her “tidy babe”.
