Germany of Florida (ANSWERED)

Postby joelamosobadiah » Tue Nov 21, 2006 3:10 pm

A court rejected a man's compensation claim against an airline after cabin crew ordered him off a plane because other passengers were offended by his smell, authorities said last week.

An appeals court upheld an earlier ruling that the airline had acted within its rights by removing the man from the aircraft after a female passenger sitting next to him complained about his smell.

"The stewardess took him to one side and asked him if he could put on a fresh shirt, but they were all in the hold," a court spokesperson said.

"So then he was asked to leave the plane - about two minutes before take off."

A spokesperson for the airline said other passengers were upset by the smell.

The corporate lawyer and his wife missed their connection when the incident forced them to take the next plane.


;-D Knock yourself out people's ;-D

1) Considering this guy is a lawyer AND married, i'm going to have to assume that he doesn't smell this bad all the time and that he probably smelled badly on this occasion due to heat induced perspiration. Florida is a lot hotter than Germany and has weather that's more likely to make one perspire and smell bad. (leans towards Florida)

2) America has plenty of lawyers, lawsuits and strict airline security. This story screams America to me. (leans towards Florida)

3) America has connection flights everywhere. Does Germany? Is Germany large enough to warrant it? (slightly leans towards America)

I'm about 75% sure it's Florida.

The use of the word "stewardess" instead of "flight attendant"? I saw that too, but it was the court spokesperson that used the politically incorrect title and not an airline official, so I disregarded it.

If this isn't what you were talking about, spill the beans! :-)

I went with Germany. Let's go 0-3!!

Anyways, I've got my reason but I don't want to say until after the answer is given because the reasons we give may influence others.
Those of us that are wrong every time would like some company. :-P
