A passenger says that he was removed from an American Airlines flight due to his weight but the story isn’t exactly what you’d expect.
Some believe that obese people should pay more or even purchase another seat when flying.
When I read that a passenger was removed from a flight over weight limits, I assumed it must be somebody overweight, not a passenger weighing 175 pounds!
Dan Nykaza, a dentist from Illinois, was buckled in and ready to leave on an American Airlines Envoy flight from Chicago O’Hare to Salt Lake City when he says he was removed from the flight because he weighs too much.
Nykaza and another passenger were taken off of the flight to reduce the weight.
After being on the plane around 20-30 minutes, a flight attendant told him that he needed to get off. According to FOX News, Nykaza said “And I’m like ‘Why?” Because there was too much weight on the plane and nobody would take the voucher they were offering. So they chose two people, me being one of them.”
Although the flight wasn’t oversold, the two passengers removed were told that they were the last ones to check-in.
Nykaza, an AA Platinum member was so mad that he turned down a $200 voucher
So I wonder, were they removed due to being the last to check-in or like Nykaza thinks, due to their weight? What do you think?
