You Can’t Fly. You’re Too Tall.
Is there any justification regarding a report about a Passenger Kicked Off Horizon Air Flight For Being Too Tall to fit in his seat on a flight from Portland, Oregon to Ontario, California, as he is 6’9″ tall?
Similar to the debate regarding obese passengers, this alleged story sparks a discussion over whether or not the passenger in question should have purchased more than one seat, as his legs would have supposedly blocked the aisle, hindering the flight attendants from doing their jobs and causing potential safety issues.
Exit row seats, which usually have extra leg room, were apparently unavailable at the time of purchase.
