Couple sue over cockroaches on flight
November 15th, 2011 by elisa

A couple is suing AirTran for cockroaches coming through air vents and storage areas on a recent flight. Harry Marsh and his fiance, Kaithlin Rush, from North Carolina, said they were sickened by the sight and are suing for over $100,000 from the airline for negligence and recklessness, as well as emotional distress.

The couple have pictures of the insects to include in their lawsuit, Marsh said he pointed them out to flight attendants but they did nothing to help.

“These roaches and other pests caused great distress to a number of passengers throughout the flight,” he said.

AirTran denies several of the allegations but won’t comment on the pending litigation. It does say however, that planes are regularly and professionally treated for insects and that cleanliness is extremely important.
