After paying $7.99 for in-flight DirecTV on her 4-hour United Airlines flight, Cary David is suing the airline for a whooping $5 million dollars because according to her, it worked for only 10 minutes before signal was lost.

According to the Mirror, she claimed the airline failed to "disclose that the services will not work as advertised when the aircraft is outside the continental United States or is over water."

David reportedly doesn't plan to spend the money, if won, all by herself. Reports say she plans to share the money with her fellow passengers!

It is however unclear if any of the other passengers have officially joined the action.

According to MSN, the suit states:

"All consumers who purchased DirecTV service or WiFi service on a DirecTV equipped plane from 1 January 2012 through and including the date a judgment is entered in this action, for a flight that flew outside of the continental United States or over water."

But United has reportedly filed a bid to dismiss the suit saying that:

"On our DirecTV-equipped planes, we clearly inform our passengers in writing on the screen before they confirm their purchase that 'Live DIRECTV programming is not available while the aircraft is outside of the continental United States' and that 'Wi-Fi service is available over the continental US'"
