Working an airplane tray table isn't brain surgery -- but an Australian brain surgeon disagrees, and he's suing because he hurt his little finger while trying to do that.
Dr. David Walker has filed a lawsuit against Austrian Airlines, which he was using to get from his home in Brisbane to Manchester, England. The doc says the cabin crew folded out the horizontal table tray from his armrest to serve his in-flight meal, but says they failed to put it back after he'd finished eating, requiring him to fold it himself.
Walker says the re-fold was too complex and caused him to jam his pinky, resulting in serious physical and emotional pain. He's asking for an unspecified amount for loss of income, as well as "anxiety and depression." (The Age)
