Fatties AND stinkers no longer welcome on planes
Throughout all of the recent furore over fat people being chucked off aeroplanes, one question has remained unasked. Namely – what about all the smelly bastards? Why aren’t they being asked to disembark before take-off?
Now, as airlines slowly morph into airbound Aryan mini-states, it’s starting to happen. It’s game over for the stinkers and the precedent has been set by regional Canadian airline Jazz Air. Nice.
CNN report that a passenger with strong body odour was asked to get off a Jazz flight a couple of weeks ago because he was stinking the whole thing out. An eye witness reported that: “People were just mumbling and staring at him. It was a very uncomfortable situation.”
One other, less tactful, passenger described the whiff on the plane as “brutal.” Jazz Air flim-flammed out some meaningless waffle that included the phrases “safety and comfort,” “resolve a situation” and “may become necessary” when asked about the whole thing, something that seems a little less than groovy, given their name.
What’s next? An odour detector for passengers to pass through as part of security? A good hosing down with some Ambi Pur for those who don’t make the grade? Mid-flight ejections for those who sweat profusely while in confined spaces? And just how cool could the Jazz Air in-flight entertainment really be? Your thoughts are kind of welcome…
