A Canadian man who has carried on a running battle with the North American airline industry was back in a Halifax court Monday to continue his fight for obese air travellers.
Gabor Lukacs is attempting to convince a Federal Court panel to allow him to make a case before the Canadian Transportation Agency.
In November, 2014, the Agency found that Lukacs didn’t have standing after he complained about what he termed Delta Airline’s “discriminatory” practice of bumping large passengers from its flights and forcing them to buy two seats.
The Agency said that because Lukacs is thin his “rights are not affected by the impugned practices” and said that he would not “suffer any prejudices if he elected to travel with Delta.”
Lukacs called that argument a “red herring.”
Likacs has filed more than two dozen successful complaints with the agency. As a result, he says he has brought about improvements of the industry.
