KLM countered that it was not physically possible for Soltesz to board the aircraft, despite every effort made by the airline.

So how did she get on board a flight out of New York? It seems if size was that big an issue, then it should have been an issue on the way over.

American airlines are far more used to dealing with fatties.

Says she flew KLM over. If they don't want her as a customer fine. Maybe put a weight limit on their website that you have to acknowledge, like an age gateway on a website, or make you put your weight in when you buy your ticket. That way, if you don't fit their requirements, you can't even buy a ticket in the first place.

What a weird story. I can understand both sides. It's weird that she got over there no problem, but none of the airlines could accomodate her on the way back. It does, however, seem like they had to deny her because of safety restrictions (like not being able to fastern her seatbelt for example). It's not like they were like "Oh, you're too fat, GTFO." At least that's how the article seems anyway.

Also, I learned a new word:
quote:

“if carrying the person would be inimical to the safety of the flight.”

quote:

Adjective: 1.Tending to obstruct or harm: "actions inimical to our interests".
2.Unfriendly; hostile.

i do this when people get on the plane with kids. Especially the really young ones that don't have to have their own seat.
Weight and child restriction limits could really be a niche market for an airline. I know I'd pay more not be bothered by someone's screaming brats. Especially when I fly over night. Right now I don't have that option.

Make her buy two seats like she did on the previous flight. Problem solved.

Every time I see a fatty on a plane and I have an empty seat next to me, that sense of dread sinks in.

Hasn't happened yet, but when it does, I am prepared to argue my way into first class. Fatty's self-esteem be damned.

Top 5 Heaviest Players in the NFL

1) Michael Jasper OT Bills 375 lbs

Offensive tackle on the Buffalo Bills practice roster, the NFLs biggest player was drafted in 2011 but was one of the final cuts for the starting lineup. If you think 375 lbs is big, Jasper weighed in at 450 lbs during college and had a shite load of problems flying, especially in Europe.


2) Bryant McKinnie OT Ravens 360 lbs



3) Marcus Cannon G Patriots 358 lbs




4) Leonard Davis G Lions 355 lbs



5) Paul Soliai NT Dolphins 355 lbs

Allowing her to board in NY, but not on the return trip is a little weird.....assuming it was a round trip on the same airline.

Still, at 425 lbs no one should be blaming others for an unexpected death.

I can see how they might have a legal case, though.

No jokes about how she was in Hungary? None? Booo OT, boooo


eta- if she had two seats then I don't see the problem. Her family has a pretty strong case especially if that goes in the airline's guidelines about allowing passengers of a certain size.
