A passenger is suing British Airways after being sat next to 'a 23-stone man' on a 12 hour flight. The businessman claims his back was injured after having to sit next to the overweight individual.

The pair were given seats by BA next to each other on the 12-hour flight from Bangkok airport in Thailand to London Heathrow on January 10, 2016.

HER chest tight, Kelly Jacobson Collins ran through her pre-holiday checklist again. Tickets, insurance, taxis… but the harder she tried to concentrate, the more her head spun. “I was having palpitations and kept telling myself I needed to calm down, but I couldn’t,” the mum of two remembers. “I knew it was normal to have a few pre-holiday jitters, but this was completely different.
