MAX’d out on MAX threads. If you are starting a thread, and it’s about the MAX - stop. There’s already a thread that covers it.

Stephen Keys, actor? At best, a C-list actor at best... Guess someone wants to get his name back in the news.

When I was working for an international airline many years ago, a 97 year old passenger filed a lawsuit claiming a stewardess spilled hot coffee in his lap which discolored his penis and ruined his sex life. That is a true story.

Well his name has not been out there sense 2011. Come on guys show him some attention.

On another note. Really your pinky is not going to prevent you with playing with your kids.

Instead of suing for money, he should be suing for psychiatric help. Money is not going to solve his supposed emotional problems that he said he faced, but psychiatric help just may.

He can't make money acting so I guess this is the next best way to "earn" a paycheck?

I had this happen on a flight I was working once. They tried all the tricks on board, but we continued for another two hours to the destination before it was dislodged.

How many lawyers do airlines need these days?

An airline might have dozens of lawsuites against it on any day

Never heard of him.
