Lawyer Sues Delta Over Bad Trip

A New York City lawyer has sued Delta Air Lines
Inc. for nearly $1 million. He claims the company's incompetent and
rude employees made his 80-year-old mother's birthday trip to South
America a stressful, costly horror.
Attorney Richard Roth says he and his family arrived in Buenos
Aires, Argentina, almost three days late. He said he also had to
spend unplanned thousands of dollars on food, hotels and
transportation, and buy tickets for another airline.
And because Delta misplaced his luggage, Roth's lawsuit says, he
had to buy new clothes for himself and family members after
arriving in Buenos Aires.
Though he was promised Delta would bring his luggage, Roth says
he had to drive to the airport in Buenos Aires to look for and
retrieve his bags himself.
He said Delta employees were rude and disrespectful when he
asked for help and the ones who were friendly were ineffective.
A Delta spokeswoman, Betsy Talton, said today that she could not
comment on pending litigation.

    Good luck with your lawsuit. It is about time someone took action. No elder person should be subjected to such abuse

    Mr. Roth, I had a similar experience with Delta Airlines a couple of years ago. If I can be of any assistance to your case, please send me an e-mail. I would be happy to give you my affidavit, or whatever else will help you in this case.

    This guy is an idiot. You were late and you want to sue. You know there are rules that airline employees have to go buy just like the laws he has to go buy. I have had a similar trip as most humans who fly. I guess you should have left earlier. *** ****
