http://www.erentals.co.uk/news/southwest-airlines-sued-over-policy-towards-fat-people-182585.html An American woman who was told she would not be permitted onto a Southwest Airlines flight last year because of her weight has decided to sue the carrier. Kenlie Tiggeman from New Orleans claims that she is not taking the legal action for monetary gain but rather to force US airlines to come up with a single policy on how they treat passengers who are overweight. Tiggeman made the headlines after she was called too fat to fly by a Southwest employee and told that if she wanted to board the flight she would have to purchase an extra seat. She said that the gate agent started to ask her questions about how much she weighed and what size clothes she wore in front of a crowd of other passengers. Tiggeman said that the conversation ended with the official admitting he wasn’t sure about the airline’s policy towards larger passengers and calling a superior who was also confused as to the exact rules. She said that the experience was humiliating and that carriers needed to come up with a standard policy so that passengers know where they stand.
