AA sued after flyer dies on her way home from honeymoon

American Airlines is being sued for wrongful death after a woman died on her way home from a Hawaiian honeymoon 2016. 



According to CNN, Brittany and Corey Oswell were flying to Dallas-Fort Worth Airport when Brittany became dizzy and fainted.


After a second collapse in the plane’s lavatory, a doctor on board suggested crew to land quickly so that she could be treated on the ground.


However, with about an hour and a half of the scheduled flight remaining, the flight crew decided to stay the course while the onboard doctor tried to treat the woman.


Although the woman was taken to hospital upon landing, the 25-year-old died in hospital three days later. 


“The family wants something (they) can't have, and that's Brittany back," lawyer Brad Cranshaw said. "But we are interested in how American intends to speak to the issues that lead to the circumstance that took Brittany's life and the pilots' decision making."


American Airlines said it was "deeply saddened by this event and our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to Mrs. Oswell's loved ones”.


"We take the safety of our passengers very seriously and we are looking into the details of the complaint," the airline said.
