As an X Morbidly Obese person, I did weight over 400, I would like to say and offer any help, that I was never treated anything BUT NICE and respectful !
I rode before the rule was loudly made known..I was more than aware of my size, I always worked the schedule to ride the 1st plane out or off of "rush hour" to ride in the seat next to the window, as there is extra room to slide some of that hip expanse against the wall. Sitting next to the isle always got "bonged",
it felt like people esp the ones trying to put their entire personal effects in the carry on, would hit you..more than once I offered to sit n the seat in the back, so attempt to make more space...I usually got on first too. The staff were extra nice aboutme and when ever I read about large people and their problems, I see another side to it.
I have finally been give the OK to fly where eer when eve so you know, as I can afford it, I shall be "gone again".
I did go to ''europe and almost gave my doctor a heart attack when he found out.
Thanks again for "being there" and as I wrote, with a few "big me pictures" included, when the ladies were giving you such a bad time..anytime I can help, I will be mor than happy to bring pictures and testify. I HAVE BEEN THER AND I HAVE DONE THAT... thanks again.
