Al Lewis Hates Fat People on Planes
Additionally and surprisingly, Lewis points out that Frontier Airlines employs an eyeballing policy:
At Denver's Frontier Airlines, gate agents eyeball their customers and if someone looks big, they suggest a seat change. The passenger usually doesn't know why.
"We to try make sure that that person is comfortable, and that the person sitting next to them is comfortable," said Frontier spokesman Joe Hodas.
It sounds like Frontier handles it better than Southwest, which instead openly discriminates. But really, is it okay because it's kept on the downlow?
It also surprises me that no one is suggesting that the seats just be made bigger, already.
Also, what ignorant column would be complete without stereotypes? Lewis ends by talking about a fat man on a flight who had a duffel bag filled with cookies. Nice. Classy. [Lots of people sent this in; thanks!]
