Agreed that this is all a beat up.
I'm sorry that I can't feel for our taller brethren here (I'm only 175cm in height), but I still think that this case has no merit.
I can't think of too many airlines (except all of them when you complain and throw a tantrum hard enough) that auto-give tall pax the best seats in their class of travel to accommodate their height, especially by displacing other pax who may have paid or had the right to sit in those seats.
If he wins, all I could imagine is all airlines around the world would probably need to institute a seat pitch of at least 34". Whilst that'd be awfully nice...... (then the fat people will say that we need seats that are at least 50% wider).
Exactly. The story seems to be more about the travel agent not doing thier job properly, not the airline. More and more airlines are charging for exit rows - is someone going to sue Jetstar and the like becuase they won't provide food for 10 hours?
Ask anyone who travels economy and most of them will say the seat pitch is uncomfortable. It is not like those are the only seats - there are exit rows and other classes. How much are exit rows? Compare that to Premium Y or Business...........I feel for tall people but there seems to be a minority who think they are 'entitled' to exit rows.
