re: Ailing 425 Pound Woman Dies After Being Refused Boarding From Three Airlines


The fattie loving American press acts like she had no choice. I'm pretty sure there are doctors and hospitals all over Europe.

quote:

Neither Mr Soltesz or his wife trusted the doctors in Hungary, especially because they wouldn’t be familiar with her lengthy medical history, Mr Soltesz said.

"She was very ill and did not trust that the hospitals in former communist Hungary could attend to her needs," he said.

LINK

It's less than a 4 hour drive to Austria if they were really afraid of Hungarian doctors.

So that's really on her and her husband.

It's weird that she got over there no problem

There's more to this story I suppose. Maybe she ballooned after being home and eating mamas' cooking? More than likely they tried to travel on the cheap and got away with it on the way over because of available seats. But fat arses that travel enough know that they have to comply with certain fat arse rules, i.e buy an extra seat(s), notify the airline of "special" needs, etc. Flights were probably full coming back and she could not be accommodated.

her family is about to get PAID


A 425 pound woman in what appeared to be terrible health (an amputee who suffered from kidney disease and diabetes – with a severely distended belly) chose to fly internationally. She didn't die because the airlines denied her boarding. There is no way she should have been traveling. Period. They shouldn't get a dime.

This is what will be argued and they are correct.

Also, it will be argued that she had the option to go to any number of hospitals in Europe for treatment. Her choice not to was detrimental to her health and she is at fault.

If she shouldn't have been flying, they shouldn't have allowed her to board in the US. She clearly doesn't belong on a plane

That isn't their decision to make since they don't ask for medical records when you purchase a ticket.

If her doctor cleared her to fly then he's going to get the blame too

Probably. But they allowed her to board on the way over. If it was going to be an issue, she should have been denied travel and her money refunded. Otherwise, don't change the rules mid-trip.

But it hurts their defense....which will be that she shouldn't be flying This amounts to changing the rules after they got her across the pond. Now they won't bring her back?

They should never have allowed her a space on a plane in NY before she even left.

Holy crap.

I don't see them winning this case. There is no reason that woman should have gotten on that plane in NYC.

Someone should start an airline just for obese people. Call it Wide Body Airlines or something.

Ad campaign:
"Wide Body Airlines. The One You've Been Weighting For."

Yep. To prove the airlines had any fault for her death, it will have to be proven that she would not have died but for the airlines refusing to let her fly. And they can't do that-because there are hospitals all over Europe.

Stupid headline is stupid.

And this is going to be the issue. The airline could accommodate her to get her over there, but couldn't do it to get her back.

I would take her lawsuit in a second. The obese face more discrimination in our society than any other group.

Then comes the second part about here CHOOSING not to go to any of the available hospitals.

All of her choices led to her death.

I'm not a lawyer. I am arguing from the common sense standpoint. That means that this family will probably get paid, which is a fricking travesty.

I would fly it just for the bigger seats. Probably would have more leg room, too. Just keep the screaming kids off of it.
