Woman Sues Qantas for Damages Resulting from Screaming Child
A 67-year-old American woman on her dream holiday in Australia claims to have literally been deafened by the scream of a three-year-old boy sitting across the aisle from her aboard a Qantas aircraft in Alice Springs whose destination was Darwin.
The woman and Qantas are attempting to resolve the issue in court more than a year after the incident allegedly occurred, in which the woman alleges permanent damage to her hearing which caused drastic changes to her life, including not being able to conduct business anymore.
FlyerTalk members discuss whether or not the woman has a case. Is Qantas responsible legally or financially?
