A furious lawyer is suing Delta airlines for $1 million for turning a dream trip to Argentina for his mother's 80th birthday into a nightmare, Reuters reports. "Obnoxious and incompetent" airline staff refused to allow the man and his family onto a connecting flight from Atlanta, so it took them three days to get to Buenos Aires and another five to be reunited with their bags, according to the suit.
The "elderly mother was a mess, and she has been suffering ever since. The kids are all upset. And it was Christmas Eve," the lawsuit states. Half of the vacation was spent "chasing down Delta and its incompetent representatives,"
