Passenger Sues Southwest Airlines

A man who claims he was clobbered by an oversized suitcase as another passenger and a Southwest Airlines flight attendant tried to stuff it into an overhead bin filed a $49,000 lawsuit against the airline. Jerry Reinhardt suffered a compressed disc from the Jan. 17, 2013, incident as he sat in his seat, waiting for others to board the Las Vegas-bound flight at Portland International Airport, according to his suit. The other passenger was trying to shove the suitcase into the bin directly above Reinhardt’s seat when a flight attendant started to help, the suit states. That’s when the suitcase came crashing down on Reinhardt, according to the suit. The suit claims the airline is at fault for allowing a carry-on that was too large for the overhead bins. The suit also faults the airline for allegedly failing to train the flight attendant in properly placing luggage in the bins. The suit doesn’t name the passenger with the suitcase and isn’t seeking damages from that person.
