What do breast implants, €100,000 and Swiss Air have in common?

Russian model Irene Ferrari brought her seat back to the upright and locked position and stowed and secured her tray table, but she never thought to check another device: her breast implants.

The turbulence on her Swiss International Airlines flight was so strong it caused her size F breast implant to hit the seat in front of her–and mind you, she was flying business class–which consequently resulted in “bruises and strong pain”.

So how does €100,000 factor in? That’s the amount she’s suing Swiss for, the Daily Telegraph reports. Fox explains that will cover the cost to replace the implants, each of which reportedly weighs 20 pounds.

This is not the first injury for Ferrari and her twinjets: in a separate incident last year, Gadling says, one of her implants ruptured during flight. Ferrari said it best, even if she did not mean a double entendre: “When I went to see a surgeon in Russia I was told I have problems with my breast.”

    Some problems are “ear”centric.
    Right in the middle between the left ear and the right ear!

    Hey Dave, we’re not really here to be page 3 of certain tabloids. That said, if you are looking for pictorial evidence, many of the links in the post give the visual perspective I think you’re looking for.
