Giorgio Destro, from Padua in northern Italy, says he suffered for 9 hours on a moody from Cape Town to Dubai.
After settling into his seat, 29K, by a window, Destro was astounded when a extremely overweight male took a adjacent seat.
A few hours into a journey, that took place in July, he asked to change seats though was told that this was unfit as a moody was entirely booked, internal paper Mattino Padova reported.
“For 9 hours, we had to mount in a aisle, lay on seats indifferent for a cabin organisation when they were free, and in a final proviso of moody renounce myself to humour a ‘spillover’ of a newcomer during my side” a counsel told internal media. He common a sketch of himself and his transport messenger as justification of his discomfort.
Destro, who used to work for a Italian Consulate in South Africa, is a prolonged tenure patron and ‘gold member’ of a airline, though even after a moody he says Emirates refused to offer an reparation or any form of compensation.
He is seeking for €2759.51 in compensation; €759.51 as a reinstate for a moody that he wasn’t means to enjoy, and a serve €2,000 in damages.
The conference is scheduled for Oct 20th in Padua.
