The owner of Russia's biggest silicone breasts is suing an airline after a combination of turbulence and skimpy business class seats forced her professional assets to double up as airbags. Model Irene Ferrari is demanding €100,000 in restitution after the buffeting on a Moscow to Zurich flight left her key business assets …
Two pretty good cases?

... to the phrase "Tits Up". They could make a movie about this and call it "Up". No wait, already been done. Sorry, not enough coffee or cordite smoke yet this AM.
Did she have her seatbelt loosely fastened as advised/disclaimed against during the pre-flight safety demos? If not, she's stuffed. Size of seat is irrelevent as operators don't always sell "class" of seats as a differentiator in terms of physical seat - more often in shorthaul it just refers to the service etc.
Besides, Is this kind of motion even possible? I've never experienced turbulence that can provide anything other than vertical or lateral g-forces. To be "thrown forward" implies a massive decceleration and redution of the plane's airspeed which sounds very unusual.
Turbulace can cause a 25 knot or more change in airspeed over a couple of seconds. However, airspeed isn't what affects the passengers- groundspeed is. A wind shear resulting in a rather steep _increase_ in airspeed (Due to a sudden headwind, for example), would result in a (relatively) gradual decrease in groundspeed.
Perhaps our star was buffeted on a vertical axis, but was unable to keep her center of gravity above the region bounded by her base. That would result in motion that could be described as "thrown forward".
€100,000 for bruises? Pull the other one.
Did I really write that?
She got the damn implants, she should sue herself.
well, she had to get them
with a face like that, what other choice did she have.
...to tack cartoon boobies on her unsuspecting body.
Now she adds stupidity to ugliness by filing a frivolous lawsuit against, basically, an act of god. (note lower case G.)
I am sure even Russian law will not cover damage to "unsecured baggage."
If you voluntarily modify your body to such a degree that you cause yourself problems that a "normal" person would not experience, then you have no one to blame but yourself.
Right on! Just like eating too much and being a fat arse :p
As if having wazongas bigger than her head (I'm guessing) isn't tasteless enough, she has to go around suing everybody as well.
Classy, classy, classy
Just googled her name
Turns out she looks exactly how you would expect her to, and somewhat worryingly like Pete Burns.
I saw Pete Burns in a club a few years ago. The pictures are bad, the reality is truly terrifying. He's a fookin beast!
@Gives Whole New Meaning ...
Fakes on a plane?
Why work for a living
when you can just keep suing for compensation...
googled in the name of research
I suppose the enhancements are a public service. Anything that distracts from that face is a benefit
to the late, and also unrealistically endowed Miss Lola Ferrari?
Why do I have to type something here?
Pictures, or it didn't happen.
... buys a lot of pain killers.
But not a lot of common sense...
I can't believe how I even read that to the end.
Will it go to court? If so, is there a public gallery?? Will she have to wop her dugs out to show the court the evidence?? Can I buy tickets???
Mine's the one with the kleenex in the pocket...
Slow news day?

Surely she's violating some hand baggage rules with that extra luggage?
Ie Photos of before & after. Mobile phone photos would do from co passengers & Witnesses.. The judge needs to be sure of the "damage" done and vital evidence is necessary to prove guilt beyond doubt.
Anyone can oblige?
Will make a good read after all the Apple hoopla last few days.
Paris, her asstes are safe, though.
Why do you hate the judge so much
I googled for the lady and just seeing her face I am going to have nightmares for a while. Not that the airbags are any better.
Sillycun/soft ti. NT.
I said no text, stupid!
What are you reading this for?
Get a life.
Boob job for a boob with a boob job.
Apparently, she doesn't own a mirror
Just Googled her picture. She would have been better off spending her plastic surgery money on her face instead of on her chest....
Troll icon, because that's who she reminds me of (with really big boobs).
im trying to make the connection between theregister and tmz articles. what does this have to do with sci/tech news?
Seems that in her case the airbags are faulty. They're only supposed to inflate on impact. Her's seem to have done so early.
I feel for her
Maybe I should kiss it to make it feel better....
letters and/or numbers
Did she buy an extra seat for those?
Doesn't she know...
that airplane cabins are pressurized to 8,000 ft above sea level (Yep, not metres. We still do feet). Your body is pressurized around sea level, thus the swelling ankles, puffy hands and wrists when you ascend quickly.
What else could a pair of (possibly compressed) implants do but expand, sometimes to bursting point?
Elementary, my dear Irene. Are you as dumb as you are ugly.
Or do you know the physics and provoke these mammary mangulations for much needed money?
Was she asked if she was carrying anything she didn't pack herself? I have heard about these drug mules, so maybe her surgeon had packed her full of crack...

But we all _feel_ smarter when we add beer.
She sued a US airline last year after an implant burst on a flight
The mythbusters have already proved this is impossible (unless the implant was damaged before the flight).
