Two Women Kicked Off Air New Zealand Flight for Size 'Too Big'

In a shocking incident that has sparked outrage and debate, two women were reportedly kicked off an Air New Zealand flight due to concerns over their size being deemed “too big.” This incident has raised serious questions about the airline’s policies and the broader issue of body size discrimination in the aviation industry.

‘After [the attendant] hung up the phone, she came over and said, “You two should have booked four seats, you two should have bought two seats each”,’ Ms Harding told¬†1News.

The incident occurred on a flight from Auckland to Sydney, Australia. According to the women involved, they were approached by a flight attendant who informed them that they would need to leave the plane due to their size. The women, who have not been publicly identified, claimed to have been hurt and in pain, with one experiencing discomfort in her left arm. This incident has been met with widespread condemnation, with many expressing concern over the potential for such incidents to lead to a culture of body shaming and discrimination in the aviation sector.

A flight attendant made an announcement asking all passengers to disembark the plane. Ms Harding said she and her friend were then told they should have booked two seats each

The women have since lodged a complaint with Air New Zealand, seeking compensation for the distress and pain they experienced. They have also called for a review of the airline’s policies regarding passenger size and weight restrictions. The incident has sparked a national conversation about body size discrimination, with many questioning the fairness and legality of such practices.

Air New Zealand has yet to comment on the incident, leaving the women and their supporters in a state of uncertainty. The airline’s response to this matter will be closely watched, as it could set a precedent for how other airlines handle similar situations.

This incident has also prompted discussions about the need for more comprehensive policies and guidelines to protect passengers from discrimination based on their size. Advocates argue that airlines should focus on ensuring passenger safety and comfort, rather than imposing arbitrary restrictions on body size.

In the wake of this incident, it is clear that the aviation industry must address the issue of body size discrimination. By doing so, airlines can ensure that all passengers are treated fairly and with respect, regardless of their size.
