Challenging airlines for mistreatment

If you have been deemed unsuitable for flight, the airline must follow the correct protocol. If they don’t follow standard procedures and deviate from it, you can definitely sue them for mistreatment.

The same applies if the airline refuses to board you without a valid reason. If you turn up the terminal on time, following all the rules yet they still refuse to let you board for a superfluous reason, you may still sue them.

Most lawyers will take on cases like this pro bono as there is a lot of unchartered precedences as well as high case publicity which will garner a lot of international publicity. This amounts to bad airline pr.

Thanks for the links, Starwise.

Don’t other passengers have a right to fly free from harrassment and intimidation? And I’d think passengers not sitting when they are told to and congregating in the aisles (as happened in Annie Jacobsen’s flight and others) would be a SAFETY issue.

This is such a “DUH!!” issue... why is the airline industry allowing itself to be hamstrung and manipulated in this manner by these stinking low-rent bullies? This will just keep getting worse and worse.
