Passenger sues United over urinating passenger
October 17, 2017

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- A New Jersey man is suing United Airlines, claiming a drunken fellow passenger urinated on him as their cross-country flight was taking off.

Daniel Card is seeking unspecified damages in the lawsuit, which accuses the airline of assault, negligence, breach of contract and emotional distress. The man says the airline shouldn't have allowed the visibly drunken man to board the June 12 flight from Los Angeles to Newark. Card claims the cabin crew initially refused his request to move from the urine-soaked seat and he had to endure the remainder of the flight in urine-soaked clothes.

United Airlines becomes latest carrier to put economy passengers in rows of 10 seats
By Hugo Martin
October 21, 2017

If you hate the middle seat on a plane, you probably won’t like the new seat configuration on United Airlines Boeing 777s.

The Chicago-based company announced that it is the latest carrier to reconfigure the seating on the Boeing 777-200 to add 21 additional seats. The plane, to be used starting this winter primarily for long-haul flights, will have 50 lie-flat business class seats — known as Polaris seats — and 242 economy seats. United said it plans to configure about 90 Boeing 777-200 planes over the next few years.

The good news is that the legroom for the economy seats will remain about the same as before. The distance between the back of one seat and the back of the next — known as the “pitch” in industry jargon — will be 31 inches for economy seats and 34 inches for “Economy Plus” seats. But to fit the extra seats, the economy and “Economy Plus” seats will be arranged in rows of ten across instead of nine.

American Airlines has already configured some of its 777-200s with ten seats across to fit 289 passengers, 42 more than under a previous layout. The Fort Worth carrier said it has plans to reconfigure those planes again to add premium economy seats, but economy passengers will still sit in rows of ten.

Italy moves to fine Ryanair over flight chaos
4 December 2017

ROME (AFP) - Italy's competition watchdog on Monday initiated non-compliance proceedings against Ryanair that could see the airline fined up to five million euros ($6 million)over its recent waves of cancellations.

The procedure was launched after Ryanair ignored an order to update its website and standard emails to ensure Italian customers were made fully aware of their rights to re-booking, re-routing and compensation in the case of flights being cancelled, the Antitrust regulator said in a statement. The company challenged the order, which required the changes to be made within ten days, but its appeal was rejected by a tribunal last month.

Ryanair has cancelled more than 20,000 flights scheduled between October and March as a result of staff shortages triggered by pilots and cabin crew leaving the company or being required to take holidays before the year end. More than 700,000 people have seen their travel plans ruined and the airline has been slammed by consumer groups and regulators for its handling of the crisis, particularly in relation to the rights of customers whose flights are cancelled.

Britain's Civil Aviation Authority reprimanded Ryanair's CEO Michael O'Leary in September for wrongly claiming that the airline was not obliged to re-route cancelled passengers on other airlines.

The company, Europe's biggest airline by passenger numbers, said Monday that it carried 9.3 million travellers last month, up six percent on November 2016. That was its slowest rate of growth in three years but the company is sticking by its pre-crisis profit forecast despite the cancellations.

Delta flight makes emergency bathroom stop in Montana
December 6, 2017

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- A Delta flight from New York City to Seattle had to make a stop in Billings after the plane's toilets stopped working and passengers couldn't hold it any longer.

The Billings Gazette reports that the direct flight diverted hundreds of miles south on Saturday to make the emergency bathroom stop. Delta says that upon landing in Billings, the plane had to taxi to a cargo area because a gate was not available. Delta says ground crews rolled a stairway to the airplane so passengers could "disembark to find relief of built-up pressures."

A flight from New York City to Seattle can take about six hours.

The worst flight ever? BA service from Berlin to London takes seven hours – but ends up where it started
By Hugh Morris
11 December 2017

A British Airways flight from Berlin to Heathrow took off five hours late on Sunday, but then turned around within sight of the UK coast and returned to the German capital leaving around 180 passengers stranded.

Flight BA983 was one of many disrupted by Sunday’s heavy snowfall, but passengers on the afternoon service will feel particularly hard done by.

The Airbus A320 was due to depart Berlin Tegel at 1.50pm but was delayed due to the weather conditions on the continent. It eventually took off at 6.57pm and made its way towards London.

However, just as it was half way across the North Sea and less than a hour from Heathrow, it performed a U-turn and flew back to Berlin, where it landed an hour later.

One passenger posted a photo on Twitter of an on-board TV screen showing the flight path, with the caption: “Nightmare.”

Reduced capacity at Heathrow as heavy snow fell on Sunday meant a number of British Airways flights were forced to divert to airports including Leeds and Newcastle, while other aircraft were held in holding patterns above the UK waiting for a window to land.

Flights at other London airports were also affected on Sunday, while services were suspended from Birmingham and Manchester, too.

Arctic blast chills US, Canada in JFK airport meltdown
by Jennie MATTHEW
January 6, 2018

NEW YORK (AFP) - The eastern United States and Canada froze Saturday under record-breaking low temperatures following a deadly winter storm as New York's flagship airport descended into chaos, battling to contain flight backlog.

In Canada, temperatures approaching minus 50 degrees Celsius (minus 58 degrees Fahrenheit) were forecast in northern Ontario and Quebec. Arctic blasts and dangerously cold wind chills could make it feel as low as minus 45 Fahrenheit across the eastern United States, with the risk of frostbite to exposed skin within 10 minutes, officials warned.

The deep freeze follows a storm, dubbed a "bomb cyclone" by forecasters, which has been blamed for at least 19 deaths in the United States, from Texas to Wisconsin, US media reported. Thursday's storm raked the East Coast with heavy snowfall, glacial temperatures and high winds, forcing the cancellation of flights. But on Saturday, more than 3,420 flights within, into or out of the United States were still delayed, with New York's John F. Kennedy airport and South Carolina's Charleston among the most affected.

The Port Authority, which runs New York-area airports, announced that flights were being limited into JFK, "including all flights scheduled to arrive into Terminal 1 for the rest of the evening." It said a surge in flights rescheduled after the storm, combined with severe storm damage to equipment, resulted in delays in getting planes and passengers to gates. Tracking site Flightradar24 said at least 12 international flights had been waiting, around two to four hours, for a gate to deplane.

Passengers complained of being stranded on the tarmac for hours and then facing lengthy delays in baggage claim that made traveling, particularly with babies or the elderly, a misery. "Losing patience," tweeted passenger James Allen, who said he travelled on Virgin Atlantic and had to wait three hours on the tarmac before reaching the gate, then two hours in baggage claim. "Two small children hungry, thirsty and tired with no facilities or help in baggage reclaim. Very poor," he tweeted.

Multiple trans-Atlantic flights simply gave up and went home, including an Aeroflot flight from Moscow that turned back over Iceland. A Norwegian Air flight from London diverted to Stewart International, 70 miles (112 kilometers) north of Manhattan, while Flightradar 24 said a Japan Airlines flight from Tokyo diverted to Boston.

Adding to the chaos, a China Southern Airlines and Kuwait Airways jet clipped each other's wings at JFK's Terminal 4 late Friday, causing damage to both aircraft but no injuries, officials said.

In New York, the National Weather Service chalked up record lowest high temperatures for the day at each of its climate sites except for Central Park, with temperatures about 25 degrees below normal. Forecasters says below-normal temperatures are likely to continue into early next week, forecasting freezing rain from Kansas to Tennessee, and that ice could complicate road transport.

Mount Washington, New Hampshire recorded the second-coldest temperature on earth early Saturday, minus 36 Fahrenheit. In eastern Canada, which has suffered through extreme cold for two weeks, there were further flight delays and cancellations at Toronto airport, and some communities along the Quebec coast faced flooding. "Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill -- and keep emergency supplies in your vehicle," the Canadian weather service warned.
