MAS fined for serving meat to a vegetarian

A Malaysian court has ordered national flag carrier Malaysia Airlines to pay an Indian man 20,000 ringgit (US$5,700) in damages for serving him meat after he asked for a vegetarian meal.

Arvind Sharma, 44, said he vomited after he was served chicken on a flight from Bangalore to Kuala Lumpur in March 2003, the New Straits Times said.

A magistrate in northern Penang state ruled that Sharma - a member of the Brahmin caste who claimed he had never eaten meat in his life - should be compensated for the depression, shock, mental anguish and humiliation he suffered.

The airline's negligence caused Sharma a "blemish in his code of conduct", the newspaper quoted the judge as saying.
