A Widower Settled A $6m Lawsuit With Three Airlines After His Late Wife Was Deemed "Too Fat To Fly"
Vilma Soltesz died in Hungary in 2012 after Delta, KLM, and Lufthansa apparently wouldn't allow her to come home to New York on their planes.
This is Vilma Stolesz back in October 2012.
The paper said her husband, Janos Soltesz, 57, "settled his $6 million lawsuit against the airlines" in late August, according to court documents.
The Daily Mail reported that the suit says the airlines sent him and his wife "on a debilitating 'wild goose chase'" which ultimately killed her.
At the time she weighed 407 pounds, and had a partially amputated left leg that left her wheelchair-bound.
According to the paper, she began feeling sick on 2 October but was cleared to fly so she could get medical treatment back in the US.
But apparently there were broken seats on the KLM plane which meant she couldn't move into them from her wheelchair.
