The guy is a dork. He should have asked her politely, and not bang on her seat. The woman went to a lawyer, seeing dollar signs in her eyes. Sure enough, she and the lawyer are going to go to court to get money. She is the one who is in the wrong. She should be fined for abusing the court system. The lawyer should be disbarred. The airline should bar her and the dork guy from flying with them.
Could have been avoided with a little consideration, and a few words spoken assertively and politely, and a willingness to meet the other half way.
Yep. Exactly how I feel about it. She came across as a jerk, and he came across as an even bigger one.
Stupidity all around.
