The Canadian Transportation Agency has been ordered to take another look at a complainant about the way Delta Airlines treats obese passengers. Passenger advocate Gabor Lukacs had complained Delta's policy of making large travellers buy two seats was wrong -- but the agency dismissed the case, saying he didn't have standing because he isn't obese. The Federal Court of Appeal decided today that the agency must deal with the complainant.Lukacs says the decision recognizes a basic moral principal. (In its 16-page decision, the Federal Court of Appeal unanimously agreed that the agency erred in law and should not dismiss a complainant solely on the basis of standing.)
