ANGRY COUPLE SUES SINGAPORE AIRLINES OVER EMOTIONAL SUPPORT FARTING DOG
Air travel is all too often an arduous prospect, with travelers facing challenges from the mundane to the incredibly challenging. We’ve all been there as we’re trying to get to another there somewhere else in the world. Bad weather delays or cancels your flight. Or maybe the airline lost your bags, overbooked, or tried to make you sit in vomit -oaked seats. And yes, that last happened recently. And sometimes the challenges make air travelers want to sue the airline for the trouble. But I’m hard pressed to find too much sympathy over one angry couple who have sued Singapore airlines because of a farting dog on their flight.
FARTING DOG ALLEGELDY FARTED NOXIOUS FUMES AND WOULDN’T STOP SNORTING
Yes, a farting dog. To be fair, the couple were on a fairly long flight (though I’ve been on longer), flying from Paris to Singapore; roughly 13 hours in the air. The angry couple, Gill and Warren Press, are making a legal stink over the dark, odious cloud they say ruined their flight experience. They were sitting in premium economy seats, but had the apparent misfortune to be next to a person traveling with an emotional support dog. Evidently, the dog was a snorter, too. I’m hazarding a guess it may have been the breed pictured above, or something similar.
FLIGHT CREW DID MOVE COUPLE AND GAVE ANGRY COUPLE A TRAVEL VOUCHER, BUT THAT’S NOT ENOUGH?
But here’s where I have even more trouble finding sympathy for this angry couple suing over an allegedly farting dog. They asked the crew to movie their seats somewhere else, but the only option that seemed available was to move to seats that were a downgrade from their section. While I’m sure that must have been frustrating, when they complained a second time later, they were in fact moved away from the farting dog to the front of economy class. And that sounds a lot to me like nice and roomy bulkhead, which is a boon.
But no, that wasn’t enough for the angry couple. Nor was the travel voucher for almost $200. They are pressing their lawsuit for a full refund! I hope the judge remembers that most mammals that fly tend to fart more when they’re on an airplane, and sends them home.
