As a 98-pound tiny blip of a person who far too comfortably sits into one of these tiny airline seats, I can say that I, for one, am disgusted by your failed attempt to fit into Kevin Smith's shoes. I have never been fat and am not sure I ever will be but public humiliation is wrong in any case. He was able to put his armrests down, able to buckle his seatbelt, and the people sitting next to him did not have a problem with it as it was only a 1 hour flight. What your employees and policies need to do is care for your customers of all ages, races, and sizes. He meant no harm and probably wouldn't cause any in the case of an emergency either. Everyone knows it's uncomfortable sometimes to sit next to a fat person, but is it really going to kill you? Take it in stride, people! So you can't use your armrest, so you get one less inch of space in an already crammed area...you're not going to be that way for life. Just stretch your legs once you're off the plane and be glad you didn't try to humiliate someone who has probably gone through a lifetime of humiliation as it is.
