Kevin Smith – Too Fat to Fly?
Kevin Smith was thrown off a Southwest Airlines flight yesterday for being a “safety risk” – in other words too fat to fly!
Smith was flying from Oakland to Burbank and was already seated when a Southwest flight attendant said that the plane’s captain deemed him a “safety risk.”
He had no problems when flying into Oakland, and took a later Southwest flight to get back to Burbank!
WTF! Smith is not that big! And if he was, isn’t that when they ask you to buy a second ticket? Not that that is a great solution in and of itself but at least you get to stay on the plane. Smith received a $100 voucher and an apology from SWA, but I highly doubt he’ll be flying with them again.
