    A FRENCH court ordered Air France to pay 146,000 euros ($180,000) to compensate a passenger who said he was served poisoned coffee on a domestic flight in 2006.

    The court ordered the carrier to pay 46,000 euros to the man and 100,000 euros to the health insurer that has been covering his costs after he said he was poisoned with drain cleaner on the Bordeaux to Paris flight.

    Marc-Fredaine Niazaire was taken ill during the flight and admitted to hospital on landing. He was operated on for a problem with his oesophagus and sued Air France for poisoning him with a "seriously toxic liquid" used to clear drains.

    A criminal enquiry concluded in 2010 that there was nothing to prosecute, after which Mr Niazaire launched a civil case seeking 680,000 euros ($846,718) in damages.

    "The symptoms arose at the same time as Mr Niazaire ingested a coffee and biscuit. They appeared suddenly," the court ruling said, adding that Mr Niazaire had never previously been treated for stomach problems.

    ;D
    Thatll certainly put one off coffee for sure (both articles).
    Fishy story...surely more than one passenger would have drunk coffee on the flight and if that was the case, surely more than one passenger would have gotten ill.
    hmmmmmm....
