We interrupt this news cycle to report that a woman has sued Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) - Get Delta Air Lines, Inc. Report for a dental bill.

According to TMZ, the Malibu, California, woman said she was on a 2015 flight from Turkey to Los Angeles when "she ordered pita bread with eggplant dipping sauce.

"She claims that when she took a bite, she chomped down on a pebble in the sauce and her tooth was obliterated," TMZ reported.

The woman, who was not identified, wants $9,999.99 to cover her out-of-pocket expense for "complex dental restoration," TMZ said.

In May 2016, Delta suspended its flight from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport to Istanbul, citing "increased security concerns in Turkey, including a travel warning issued by the State Department, and weaker demand for air travel to this market."

We will leave it to others to suggest that the service cancellation was related to pebbles in the eggplant sauce.

Delta declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Travel writer Joe Brancatelli said, "If the woman is serious, she'd have to sue Delta and Delta's caterer."
