Woman alleges pebble in airline’s dipping sauce

A lawsuit concerning pita bread, eggplant dipping sauce and an oral injury has set an airline’s teeth on edge.

A woman is suing Delta Air Lines over her badly chipped tooth, seeking to extract USD 10,000 for out-of-pocket dental expenses, according to

The exact figure being claimed is USD 9999.99, one cent short of a five-figure sum, presumably for some legal reason.

The complainant claims Delta refused to compensate her after she bit a pebble in eggplant dipping sauce while eating it with pita, making for a disastrous flight from Turkey to Los Angeles in 2015.

The woman says she destroyed a bottom tooth, leaving an exposed nerve. She says she screamed in pain and flight attendants rushed to her side, “but only offered her the equivalent of USD 80 in airline miles”, according to the report.

The woman claims to have undergone two years of “complex dental restoration” at great expense.
