Going to Vegas didn't cost Kathy Kuhn an arm and a leg. But her knee is another issue. The suburban Detroit woman is suing Northwest Airlines. Kuhn charges she injured her knee while trying to climb into the middle seat. The suit claims Kuhn needed surgery to repair a ligament after wrenching her knee on an armrest that wouldn't go up.

Northwest denies responsibility for the 2007 injury.
