This is just messed up on SOOO many levels!
The Blind Side actor Quinton Aaron was minding his own business as he boarded a flight in Philadelphia heading to Rochester for a quick 1-hour trip!
Unfortunately, he never made it off the ground as he was asked by an attendant to leave the plane! Why, you ask? Because he was too big for his seat!
Standing at 6'8" and weighing in at 500 pounds, Quinton usually tries to reserve two seats next to each other. However, when he realized the flight was fully booked he was forced to squeeze into one and the passenger sitting next to him was NOT able to fit in his chair!
Luckily, Quinton was able to lock up 2 seats for a later flight and seemed pretty understanding of the whole situation, saying:
"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."
Talk about being a good sport!
We're glad to hear Quinton wasn't too peeved with the whole scenario, but it still seems kind of messed up that he's forced to buy two tickets any time he wants to fly somewhere!!
Planes need bigger & roomier seats!
