Man Loses Stinky Lawsuit

A court in Germany rejected a man's compensation claim against an airline after a cabin crew ordered him off a plane because other passengers were offended by his smell, authorities said Thursday.

The passenger, who said he stunk because he had to carry his bags in the heat prior to the flight, was asked to change shirts by flight attendants. The smelly guy had no clean shirts with him (they were in his checked baggage), so he was asked to leave the flight (much to the happiness, I must imagine, of the person sitting next to him).

Did you KNOW...
"...the airline's terms and conditions made clear they could bar passengers because of their smell."

Continental May have to Merge

HOUSTON (AP) -- The chief executive of Continental Airlines Inc. says the company would consider a merger to remain competitive if the industry continues to consolidate.

In a message to employees Friday, two days after US Airways Group Inc. made a hostile bid for bankrupt rival Delta Air Lines, Continental chief Larry Kellner told employees the airline wants to remain independent and continue to grow.

"However, if the landscape of the U.S. airline industry does indeed change, we'll do what we need to do to act in the best interests of you, our customers, our shareholders and the communities we serve," Kellner said in the message released by the airline, the nation's fourth-largest carrier.

SWA will buy Delta's Assets

Low-cost carrier Southwest Airlines has told Delta Air Lines and US Airways Group it would buy any assets they sell if they merged, according to a report on Monday.

Southwest Chief Executive Gary Kelly said if the bid were to proceed, US Airways and Delta would have to sell some assets to address antitrust concerns, according to the report.

Southwest wants to buy any aircraft and airport gates put up for sale, especially on the U.S. East Coast, and it has told Delta and US Airways of its interest, the report said.
