An American Airlines passenger is asking the company for “redress” after tweeting that she was “squeezed” between two “obese people” on a three-hour flight.
Sydney Watson, who describes herself as an Australian/American political commentator, posted on Twitter on Monday stating that she was “literally – KELT between two FAT people on my flight.”
“This is absolutely NOT acceptable or okay. If fat people want to be fat, fine. But it’s a whole other thing when I’m stuck between you, with my arm rolling on my body, for 3 hours,” Watson said.
In the tweet thread, Watson said that “If you need a seat belt extender, you̵[ads1]7;re TOO FAT TO ASK ON A PLANE.”

“Buy two seats or don’t fly,” Watson added.
Watson said the flight attendant on the flight “has asked me 4 times if I need anything” and gave her “this f–ing pity expression.”
According to Watson, she asked a brother of one of the women she was sitting next to if he wanted to “switch seats.”
“He’s like, ‘no. It’s okay :)’ …and then I started screaming internally,” Watson said.
“I don’t care if this is mean. My whole body is currently being touched against my wishes. I can’t even put the armrests down on either side because there’s no room. I’m tired of acting like Fatme to this extent is normal. Let me assure you it is not,” she said.

After calling out American Airlines, the company responded, tweeting, “Our passengers come in all different sizes and shapes. We’re sorry you were uncomfortable on your flight.”
“Holy s–t,” Watson said of American Airlines’ response to her experience.
“This is basically their official response to me being sandwiched between two overweight people,” Watson said. “So I’m expected to only have a quarter seat when I fly? I just experienced being sweated, touched without my consent, punched in the face and subjected to hours of no personal space. And your response is essentially ‘too bad’? Is it what I’m getting here?,” Watson said.
At one point during the flight, Watson said she “chose to close my tray table and hold the teacup between my teeth because it’s sticking in her stomach and I can’t get it down properly.”
