A former flight attendant who claimed she was injured during an alleged heavy landing at Dublin Airport has withdrawn her case at the High Court.

Cassandra Reddin could now be facing a hefty six-figure legal bill after she withdrew her action on the fifth day of the hearing.

She had claimed she suffered injuries on an Aer Lingus Malaga-to-Dublin flight on November 19, 2009, when she was working as a flight attendant. She now works in Aer Lingus' social media section.

Withdraw

Mr Justice Michael Hanna was told yesterday that Ms Reddin wished to withdraw her action and it could be struck out with no order as to costs.

She will now have to pay the legal costs of her own side which included two senior counsel, junior counsel and a solicitor.

Ms Reddin (33), Woodlands Manor, Ratoath, Co Meath, had sued Aer Lingus over the back and neck injuries she claimed she suffered.

It was claimed there was an alleged failure to adequately supervise in terms of the landing of the plane by a co-pilot. Aer Lingus denied the claim.
