Delta sued after passenger 'broke teeth' on aubergine sauce

Delta Air Lines has been hit with a lawsuit after a passenger's in-flight snack allegedly resulted in thousands of dollars' worth of expensive dental work.

The woman ordered pitta bread with aubergine dipping sauce on a LA-bound and claims there was a pebble in the sauce.

After taking a bite her front teeth were damaged by the pebble, exposing a nerve, TMZ reports.

That caused her to shriek in pain.

She then claimed flight attendants came to her aid and later offered her $80 of airline miles.

The lawsuit is claiming $9,999.99 for 'complex dental restoration' over the course of two years.

Delta has made no official response yet to the lawsuit.

    I so agree, how could she not see the pebble. Hoax if you ask me.

  • Poor dental work in first place

    I would suggest she had poor dental work in first place if it couldn't cope with a bit of grit (or perhaps the crusty pitta bread). Her eyesight must be pretty bad too if she put a 'pebble' - a small rounded stone - in her mouth! Time to stop this blame culture and accept your own responsibility for your body and what you put into it. If it hadn't happened then it would have in another meal.
