    A Southwest Airlines passenger who recently shed 120 pounds says she and her mother were humiliated at Dallas Love Field last month for their sizes.
    Kenlie Tiggeman told WDSU-TV in New Orleans that she and her mother, Joan Charpentier, were pulled aside during a layover on Easter Sunday.
    “I asked him what the weight restrictions were, and he said that he didn't know, just that we were too heavy to fly, too fat to fly,” she said.

    I would have loved to eavesdrop on the later conversation between that gate agent and her/his bosses.
    Basic sensitivity training recommended for that person. ;)
