American Airlines banned a San Diego man from the airline over an incident that happened a few years ago. Then I will share my take after covering the details.
American Airlines is being sued by a man named David Klein, who alleges he was wrongly banned from future flights with the company after a flight in 2019. This is the version of events that the lawsuit says is the case.
Klein said he didn't think about it until...
Klein made reservations for himself and his wife to travel from Los Angeles to St. Maarten on American Airlines so they could attend a friend's 60th birthday party. The couple was surprised to discover that they were not allowed to fly with American Airlines.
American Airlines refused to explain why he was banned, though he believes that it was related to this year's incident, and that the flight attendant filed a report with the airline that wrongly accused him of not following safety instructions.
Klein asked American Airlines to let him travel with them again, but they didn't reply. He is trying to get a court order that would allow him to fly with American Airlines again. Klein claims that by not being allowed to fly with American Airlines, he won't be able to fly to certain destinations and will incur higher costs and a loss of time.
There is more to the story that I have to imagine. We only get one side of the story from the lawsuit. There are a number of things that stand out about this.
I am pretty sure that this isn't just as described, so I'm curious to see how this lawsuit progresses. If it is described, then American failed badly in communicating the ban to the traveller.
A man is suing American Airlines after he was banned from checking in for a flight. He believes he was banned because he got into a disagreement with a flight attendant.
The traveler said he moved the flight attendant's arm while she tried to upright his seat. I think there was more to this than what is being presented.
What do you think about this case?
