    Southwest Airlines recently kicked a guy off their plane because he was 'too fat.' Oddly, it was a return trip, so the guy had just recently flown on the same airline. Apparently he was grabbed on the skywalk and told "You aren't flying today."


    Raises some interesting questions.

    And apparently he walked down to the United counter and got a ticket with no trouble.

    There are interesting issues involved, but letting him fly one way but not return seems a little harsh.

    I have to wonder, how much is 'too fat'? Maybe he gained more fat while he was enjoying himself before his return flight. LOL

      Considering flights may be like a year apart, I would think this was likely the case. smile
