The flight carrier has been issued a lawsuit after a passenger flew from Barcelona to New York.

Othon Cortes's family is suing American Airlines for not properly preparing their in flight meal. The family claims the chicken Cortes was served had a deadly bacteria.

His wife, Raquel, says Cortes suffered nausea, shortness of breath and "clear outward manifestation of severe physical illness."

It is also said Cortes suffered a "cardiac event" on a transfer to Miami.

The family is suing for $1 million. They also blame AA for not stopping her husband from boarding.

That part might be a little unfair.

The lawsuit comes after the airline filed for bankruptcy two days beforehand.

    If I experienced a "cardiac event" on a plane, I wouldn't be looking for my connecting flight - I'd be looking for the nearest hospital. Also, this is a bogus lawsuit … if the food was contaminated, then hundreds of passengers would be ill, not just one. Sorry for the family's loss; but suing the airline is wrong & is nothing more than the family misdirecting their grief and looking for someone to blame.

    In response to the lawsuit, American Airlines has changed the name of their chicken dish from chicken cortez to chicken montezuma according to an AA spokesperson.
