Vegetarian man fails to boost compensation
An Indian national flying on Swiss International Airlines has failed to increase his compensation from the airline after it accidentally served him a non-vegetarian meal.
A lower court in Mumbai has already ordered the airline to pay the man CHF 297 in damages – but the man appealed, saying the level of compensation was too low.
The court disagreed and said the original settlement was fair.
The man follows the Jain religion which forbids eating meat or any products that come from animals as well as any vegetables that grow underground, such as onions or garlic.
