Air France Sued by “Fat” Passenger

A passenger who weighed 353 pounds is suing Air France for forcing him to buy a 2nd seat on a flight from Delhi to Paris last year.  He was especially upset that Air France staff measured his waist in the airport to prove that he was too large.  He also wasn’t too happy that Air France’s lawyer said, "Let’s be objective. This man is fat…He barely fits
on the courtroom chair. How could he sit in an airplane?"  That wasn’t nice.  Oh, and the lawyer repeatedly referred to him as being "enormous" during the trial.  The passenger is seeking about $11,000 in damages, payable in pudding.
