'Blind Side' Star Quinton Aaron -- Forced Off a Flight ... For Being Too Fat
'Blind Side' Star

Forced Off a Flight ...
For Being Too Fat
45 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE





Aaron was booted from a flight Friday for excess ba ge -- his stomach.

Quinton -- who stands 6'8" and weighs 500 lbs -- tells TMZ ... he typically buys 2 seats when he flies but only one was available.

Quinton boarded the U.S. Airways jet in Philly for a 1 hour flight to Rochester, but never even got to hear the safety message.  He says the passenger who was booked in the coach seat next to him was blindsided and could not wedge himself onto the cushion because of Q.A.'s girth.

Quinton says he talked it out with the flight attendant -- to no avail -- and he was politely asked to leave the plane and then booked on a later flight ... where he secured 2 seats.

Quinton adds, “I definitely need two seats ... It worked out for the better … my knees weren’t pushed into the back of the metal on someone else’s seat.”
 
The upside ... two dinners.

How did he even fit in the seat with his height and weight?! It seems like if you're 200lbs it will get pretty uncomfortable. Can't imagine 500.

what did he want the flight attendant to do?  It's not the other passengers problem...when I'm on a flight, seated next to a stranger I do not want to be touched because I convince myself that I am knowingly, insidiously letting bedbugs claim me for the duration of the flight.  

I think it's official policy with some airlines, like southwest @ tatee

The seats aren't wider though. 
Just more leg room.
