Woman sues airlines over `economy class syndrome'

Woman sues airlines over `economy class syndrome' heart attack

Quote:
The lack of leg room on a flight from Paris to San Francisco led to a near-fatal heart attack, according to a suit filed against two major airlines by a woman who blames "economy-class syndrome" for her ailment.

Debra Miller, 37, of Oakland, sued Air France and Continental Airlines in federal court earlier this week.

Miller traveled from Paris to San Francisco, with a stop in Newark, N.J., on April 12, 2001. On April 28, while visiting Napa with her husband, Miller suffered a near fatal heart attack and had to have a blood clot removed from her body, said Michael Danko, one of Miller's lawyers. The medical term for "economy-class syndrome" is deep-vein thrombosis.

On what basis is the suit filed?

For what it's worth, there are documented cases of this happening to business and first class passengers on long haul flights as well.
