Atinka, Emirates head to court in Multimillion dollar ‘Di Asa Queen,case



Indications are that Atinka Media Village, producers of popular TV dance reality show Di Asa are considering the option of suing United Arab Emirates airliner Emirates for multi-million dollars in compensation and damages.

The reason for the possible suit is that Emirates “disrespected and discriminated” against Di Asa winner Precious Mensah or PM, according to Atinka Media. Responsive

The plus size dance queen was allegedly turned away by Emirates over her size after the station booked all tickets and met all conditions for embarking.
The airline issued a statement to state their side of the story revealing that they gave Atinka the option of upgrading her seat which they rejected.

In their own statement, Atinka said the “Queens including PM went through all the departure formalities on the travel date with representatives of the ticketing agent present to assist them in the departure formalities. This is because we had informed them about the sizes of the Queens and the need for special seating.”

“At about 5:30 pm, a few minutes to boarding time, when all the queens had completed the check-in process, an Emirates official, informed us (AMV) that the Airline could not complete the Check-in process for PM without offering tangible or logical reasons.When pushed further and asked why, they informed us PM could not board the plane due to safety reasons. When we enquired further, they said they were in consultation with their superiors at the Emirates Office at Mövenpick Hotel in Accra for further directives.We further asked them if the problem had to do with seating and if procuring additional seat could solve the problem, but the Emirates officials at the airport said there was no need for that (it must be emphasized that PM was present and witnessed all these engagements with the Emirates officials)”.
