'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.

i think ive heard of bigger folks being asked to buy two seats before...

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.

Even at his height that's too much weight. But good thing he was a good sport about it.

I remember one of the times I bought two seats and they tried to get me to let another passenger sit in it. Um no boo boo. I paid for all that extra space. Be gone.

It's actually not too much of a waste.

I buy 2 seats because I don't like strangers touching me. And with 2 coach seats you get twice the mileage for cheaper than a first class seat with more room and no one bothering you every 5 minutes.

Not everywhere. If it's a long flight and I'm not in first or an extra legroom seat and not flying with someone I know, then I'll do it. So actually not that often. But it's worth it when I have to do it. Though I do get some pushback since I'm not fat so people feel like it's not right.

Frankly, I hope they feel it's right to kindly kiss your ass since the seats are bought and paid for and it's your prerogative.

would y'all be the people to complain if you felt a tad crowded?

I'm wondering if the person sitting next to him got up and complained or the attendant just noticed the discomfort...

as far as i remember, this is not new

the reality is, at 500 lbs, you will not fit into one seat. 
Until they start making super sized seats, its reasonable to pay for two.

My husband is no were near 500 lbs but we are both big people, so I buy an extra seat for HIM.  That is life and he was WRONG to think that anyone....paying for their seat would want to be SQUEZZED and uncomfortable for the entire flight.
 
He should have just taken another flight and that is that.  HE WAS WRONG.
 
When you are a big person, you have to plan ahead, be honest with your limitations, be honest with the seating and plan accordingly.

My SO is 6'8" but he's also only 243 pounds....

But yes, dude is big if he's 500 pounds... That's heavy for any height though.... I wouldn't be shocked if the passenger complained. I probably would too. I couldn't imagine paying several hundred dollars for a seat to have to be squished the whole flight...

He really blew up

Ain't it sad, though? The guy isn't poor or anything which is great but this seclusion is so typical of "shooting star actors," especially when they're of color.

A movie, typically white feel good films, features a person of color who is the center of the white feel good circle jerk and is highly regarded and praised constantly, award shows adorn them, everything's great!

And then as quickly as it began, that's it, the person is forgotten but the white co-stars stay rich and famous.
