LAS VEGAS (CN) – Binion’s Gambling Hall & Casino says a charter aircraft service left 28 of its best customers on the tarmac instead of flying them to a “once-in-a-lifetime” Super Bowl party at the Playboy Mansion because a flight attendant was sick.
Binion’s, located on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas, says in Clark County Court that it paid Aaron Aviation Inc. $21,908 to take 28 of its best customers in two private planes to the party on Feb. 7, 2010.
But “the aircraft inexcusably never left the runway due to a purported illness of a flight attendant,” the lawsuit states.
The passengers were then asked to get off the plane and “return to Binion’s dissatisfied and disgruntled about the planning and implementation of the event,” according to the lawsuit.
Binion’s said it brought its customers to the hotel in a limo and gave them each $2,000 to spend and another $100 for dinner at its steakhouse to “mitigate the loss of good will and damages to its reputation.”
The casino, which operates under the name Vintage Vegas Gaming Inc., wants at least $10,000 in damages for breach of contract.
The lawsuit was filed by Mark A. Hutchison with Hutchison & Steffen.
