Paderno Konstantin sued Aerosvit Airlines after a flight delay -- from Kiev, Ukraine -- made him miss a connection to Tel Aviv, which, in turn, caused him to arrive in New York some thirteen hours later than originally scheduled. (He wanted to recover $734 in expenses that allegedly resulted from that delay.)
While the Kings County Civil Court awarded Konstantin $434, the Appellate Term, Second Department, reversed and dismissed the case because the guy was unable to present appropriate proof of his damages.
He certainly made no connection there, either.
