Chicken or $5,000?

An Indian passenger was awarded nearly $6,000 for mental anguish after he was served chicken on a Malaysia Airlines flight.  The passenger, a vegetarian (obviously), "experienced depression, shock, stress and humiliation" and vomited after being served the chicken.  Isn’t this is roughly the same experience we all have after eating airline chicken? (have I been reduced to making airline food jokes?  What am I, Jay Leno?)


  1. Shouldn’t it be chicken or $6000?

  2. technically, yes.
