Obese man loses no seat claim against airline

#1
A Middlesbrough man deemed too fat to fly has lost his case against the travel company he claims would not accommodate him.
Link here


He's 29 stone for Christ's sake. I wouldn't want to sit next to him on 20 minute train journey, never mind a 4 hour flight to Turkey.

hooped. mk

Mr Brown said the incident had left him a virtual recluse.
Moaning to the Beeb doesn't seem that reclusive to me.
At that weight he's a drain on the NHS too!

On a more constructive note, however, I'm sure he could have been transported as cargo or accommodated on a container ship from Ipswich.

"Thomas Cook has already reimbursed the cost of Mr Brown's holiday 'and was offered a plate of pies' which he refused.".

fat people want everything, they already use the disabled and mother and baby parking spaces at tesco - what more do they want?

29 stone? Presumably that means he couldn't squeeze through the over wing emergency exits. Bad news for those sitting on fire in the row behind.

It's a toss up which is worse, actually... sitting next to a man elephant, or a badly, very badly behaved child. Neither should be acceptable.

Mr Brown said he was unhappy about the decision.

He said: "I'm still after the apology. That's all I ever wanted. It's not been about the money. It's been about the apology.
...in that case he should return the money to Thomas Cook !
...fat b@stard!

Well there is a very easy solution for him: buy two tickets and flow across two seats.

Suppose he could try losing some weight.

No, that would be too difficult. Silly me.

Did they have to move him from on end of the plane to the other for take off and landing.
What would be worst though sitting next to him or next to bLIAR, at least you would get a sensible conversation with a fat CNUT.

Bring on the fat tax. Anyone above a medically acceptable weight of fat should pay for all the extra resources they use, through taxation and at the point of delivery.

If you want to be a disgusting bloater, that's your choice and you should be prepared to live with it. Just don't expect me to subsidise your greed and laziness.

Aye, and while we're at it, don't look at me like I've shat in your chips when I ask you to move over so I can get a seat on the bus too!
