Kevin Smith oversized? ejected from flight

Full story: LA Daily News

Kevin Smith says he's "way fat," but that shouldn't stop him from flying. The director and actor says a pilot ejected him from a Southwest Airlines flight from Oakland to Burbank, Calif., saying he didn't fit properly in a single seat.

I would hate sitting by a fat person they always have that fat smell, next time try the cargo area and if you get hungy there might be a cat or dog that you can munch on

Southwest's policy sounds reasonable, I have been on flights where grossly fat people took up some of the space that I was paying for and made my flights very uncomfortable. It doesn't seem unreasonable to have such people pay extra.

I'm a big guy but thankfully not at the point where I can't fit properly in an airplane seat.
If he normally buys two seats why did he think he was going to fit in a single seat in this case?
Also he should just fly first class. I know Southwest has "low fares" but I'd think that one first class ticket couldn't be much more expensive than 2 tickets, plus he'd then be flying on an airline that doesn't treat their passengers like cattle.
SWA doesn't have first class, although it is a first class airline.

Sorry Kevin. People who are overweight think about it all the time, and suffer more than the people inconvenienced. I am sorry that you were humiliated. If you were Handicapped; you would have had your own private jet if necessary.
