Did any of you see the article in today's Houston Chronicle, City & State section page 22A? Seven "survivors" of the Tropic Air flight that crashed near Ambergris Caye in December 2002 are suing Tropic Air and Headrick Companies of Laurel, Ms., which sells Tropic Air tickets. Wondered how long that was going to take. The other 6 passengers are not included. No one was seriously injured, no broken bones and several stayed on and enjoyed their vacation from what I remember.

They should be honoring that pilot for an incredible job of managing to land in shallow water without a single injury!!!!

You are so right, Jesse. Is Mother Nature named in the suit as well? Are they all from the states, the great land of opportunity and litigation? If there's a settlement, how much will ticket prices increase?

Poor babies. Here are some more.
--------------------------------------------------
From an airline message board:

May 14, 2004 (AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) -- A couple from Cook County are suing American Airlines because they felt cramped during a flight to Paris, France.

In the lawsuit the couple say they were enticed to buy their tickets from American Airlines two years ago as it advertised generous legroom. However, they claim they were cramped during the nine-hour flight on board the Boeing 767 aircraft, and that they suffered back and leg pain. The couple complained about their seating, but were not permitted to move to roomier seats.

The couple are seeking more than USD100,000 in compensation and say the situation led to the man tripping at the entrance to the Basilica of St. Paul's in Rome, which resulted in him breaking his nose and teeth.
