A wife and daughter are currently suing SkyChefs for allegedly killing their husband/father with bad airplane food. The lawsuit claims that the man, Othon Cortes, ingested food tainted with Clostridium perfringens, a somewhat common foodborne bacteria, while on an American Airlines flight. After experiencing "discomfort and pain that included sharp stomach cramps and sudden thirst and other clear outward manifestation of severe physical illness," he died before the plane landed. The family is suing for $1 million. SkyChefs claims they were not even responsible for the meal served on that particular flight.
