Sydney Watson, an Australian, was talked about when she shared photos of her vol three o'clock a short time ago. In a series of tweets, the young woman, a member of a conservative party, had complained of being “ stuck between two obese people on board the plane that she borrowed, supporting photos.

But as reported by Daily Mail , the company American Airlines rejected Sydney Watson's complaints.

In the photos posted on Twitter, we could see the young woman visibly much too tight in her seat. She had also shared her feelings in writing: “ I don't care if it's mean. My whole body is currently affected against my will. I can't even put my arms on the armrests on either side because there's no fucking room. I'm sick of acting like obesity is so normal. Let me assure you that is not the case. If you need a seat belt extender, you're TOO BIG TO BE ON A PLANE. Buy two seats or don't fly ».

In other tweets more akin to fatphobia, Sydney Watson added “ the two fat ones sweat on me ».

American Airlines' initial response was immediate: Our passengers come in all shapes and sizes. We're sorry you were uncomfortable during your flight. “, had written the company before refusing the complaint of the young woman.

But a week later, the airline did an about-face. In an email to Sydney Watson who shared it with her subscribers, American Airlines apologized before offering a $150 coupon to use on another airline flight.

« We do our best to avoid uncomfortable seating situations. I can understand your disappointment that the situation has not been corrected to your satisfaction. “, explained American Airlines.

Despite these apologies, Sydney Watson did not seem convinced by this gift coupon: “ I'd rather take the $150 American Airlines offered me as a refund and give it to someone who needs a workout or a gym membership. ».
