Frontier Airlines is paying $10,000 for each passenger who flew on a Frontier flight from Dallas to Los Angeles last summer.
The amount is a small sum for the company but the passenger is trying to get compensation for the emotional trauma he experienced on the flight.
Frontier said in a statement that it has paid $1.4 million in the lawsuit to the passenger.
It was the fourth settlement Frontier made in a three-year period.
The company settled a class-action lawsuit in 2012 and another in 2015.
