A man claiming to have been squashed into a window seat on a 13 hour flight is suing British Airways for the 'injuries' he subsequently suffered.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Whilst I sympathise, when you read the whole story, it seems a bit far fetched.

Why wait over two years?

The case could have taken two years to reach court @techiebloke.

It’s possible...I guess, but honestly? Sounds like a pile of BS to me.

Indeed. I wonder if he realises he will have to pay costs if...oh hang on. This must be done of those “have you been involved in an accident....” no win no fee jobs. Smiley LOL

Don't get me wrong being sat next too some one who spills over into your seat, is no laughing matter, it's uncomfortable I know as its happened to me incidentaly on BA flight to dubai, but does it give you injuries like that, where you have to cut back on work for 3 months, no it dosent, yes I ached a little when I got off the flight, but was perfectly fine by the next day, so think he's exgrating a lot there, as for sueing BA he knew what could happen by booking economy you don't know who you will get next too you, what size, height, manners etc, my answer to that if you don't want anyone next too you who may not be too your liking then book 2 seats, or pay for an upgrade to business or first class which have much larger seat pitches.

@eileenusher: you would have thought that a 'civil engineer company director' could afford an upgrade. 0yY8mge
