Big guy told to buy 2 plane seats - and is booked in different rows
In the latest Let’s Humiliate People Too Large To Fit Into Plane Seats news, a 37 stone man was told to buy 2 airline seats because he couldn’t fit into one. So they gave him one seat in Row 17 and one in Row 19. OUCH.
Les Price, 43, booked a flight home to South Wales from Ireland in advance, and discovered the error when he boarded the plane. To add to the embarrassment, he had to continually explain to airline staff that he’d had to book 2 tickets because he was over the airline’s 20 stone weight limit.
‘When I got to the airport I had to explain to all the staff why I had two tickets,’ he said. ‘They didn’t have a clue. When I finally got on the plane one was an aisle seat and the other was by the window – in a three-seat row.’
Mr Price became obese after injuring his back, then turned to comfort eating after the untimely death of his wife from cancer. So this will make him feel even better. Well done, unnamed airline!
