Moment American Airlines passenger is demanding “compensation” from the airline after tweeting that she was “sandwiched” between two “obese people” on a three-hour flight.
Self-described Australian Sydney Watson/American political commenter wrote on Twitter on Monday that he was “literally BUSTED between two obese people on my flight.”
“This is absolutely NOT acceptable or okay. If fat people want to get fat, that’s fine. But when I’m stuck between you guys, with your arm around my body for 3 hours, it’s a whole other thing,” Watson said.
“If you need a seat belt extender, you’re TOO FAT TO GET ON A PLANE,” Watson tweeted.

“Buy two seats or don’t fly,” Watson added.
Watson said the flight attendant on the flight “asked me 4 times if I needed anything” and told him “it’s f–ked”.
According to Watson, one of the women he was sitting next to asked his brother if he wanted to “switch places.”
“He’s like, ‘no. It’s not good :)’ …then I started screaming internally,” Watson said.
“I don’t care if it’s pointless or not. My whole body is being touched against my will right now. I can’t even put the armrests on either side because there’s nowhere. I’m sick of being treated like this. It’s normal to gain this much weight. I assure you, it’s not,” she said. .

“This is really their official response to me being stuck between two obese people,” Watson said. “So I’m only expected to have a quarter of my seat when I’m flying? I’ve just been sweaty, touched without consent, bumped in the face, and subjected to hours of lack of personal space. Your response is essentially ‘too bad’? Am I coming here?” Watson said.
