Stephen Keys, an actor who was in Soul Plane and Hannah Montana, is suing American Airlines and SkyWest in relation to a December 5 incident in which his pinky finger allegedly got snagged in a hole beneath the armrest of his seat for nearly an hour.
“Dozens of passengers became aware of Mr. Keys’ perilous condition, causing his dire situation to become a humiliating public spectacle. By the end of it all, he remained entrapped in this nightmarish condition, suffering for nearly an hour,” the lawsuit says, in part.
SkyWest, the airline aboard which the incident took place, is one of many airlines that partners with American Airlines.
