You mean to say, fat bastard can not read the ticket when its clearly stated on the policy refusal of carriage when the aircraft is fully booked. All airline carriers have this policy and some airlines like United does not enforced the policy.
Its bull that even WN gave this fat fuck anything when it clearly states it in WNs policy.

I'm having a hard time feeling any sympathy for Kevin since everyone knows the rules. You basically have someone who doesn't give a damn about eating the last twinkee and then wants to whine when he has to comply with an airline's guidelines. If he didn't like the policy then maybe he should have either driven or stopped eating so unhealthy. It'd be one thing if this was discrimination but when someone is so overweight they can't fit into an airline seat then maybe they need to take responsibility and not pass it off to the industry. If the person is overweight due to medical reasons then it'd be one thing but stuffing yourself while being a couch potato doesn't make a sane excuse.
