Ouch, I think he should win that suit no problem.

And I am flying on Jet Blue this Thursday.

I take that particular flight twice a year! I also sleep like a log so could have missed all this if I was on the flight that day.

That's when the pilot called him "towards the front of the plane, towards the cockpit, and advised the plaintiff that he would have to give his seat up" to the flight attendant, the suit says.


You'd think the pilot would have more important things to do during the flight. And isn't the pilot behind a locked door? I thought it was the flight attendants jobs to deal with passengers.

Hmmm... This strikes me as a story that's been "exaggerated" for a monetary settlement. The article's only source appears to be the plaintiff's filing and does not indicate any corroboration.

A rep for JetBlue said the company doesn't comment on pending litigation.

I too doubt the truth to this. The flight attendants must have a jump seat, the FAA would have a cow over it.

Ever notice that the jump seats:
1) face backwards
2) have full harnesses
3) have full head rests

I would assume that they are far safer than the coach seats I get crammed into

exaggerated or not, it is quite common for large businesses to not comment on 'pending litigation'

The only smart comments on pending litigation are either:

1) no comment
2) its groundless and we will prevail

so much for post 9/11 airline security. Shouldn't the pilot be driving and NOT calling passengers towards the cockpit? Or was the pilot flying in such a way that he caused passengers to get pulled towards the cockpit, an incident happened to me once after I had woken up from a nap, I decided to head for the bathroom on an int. flight and the plane suddenly started to descent I felt all those g forces tugging on me I reached out and extended my arms to get a hold of the headrests of two seats on either side of the isle. I thought I was safe but unlucky for me the air hostess a short distance away towards the rear of the plane had lost sight of the food cart she was serving dinners to people from. As the plane descended, this cart started to accelerate and pickup momentum and became almost like a missile heading right towards me. I had to think fast, I though about and almost squatted down to duck first, and then I realized that wasn't a good idea so I got back up and took it like a man. Moral of the story: when the pilot announces "we are about to land shortly", hes not kidding and shortly can mean like in 5 minutes so buckle up!
