Ugh, imagine being stuck next to her in an aisle seat. Holy fuck I'd be so mad. If you ask me, once someone goes into "morbidly, disgustingly, mind-blowingly obese" they should pay for half the ticket of the person on either side of them too for putting up with their B.O. and that noise that sounds like they're choking when they're just breathing.
ugh. He says the airline didn't want to be "inconvenienced"...? Not true. The seatbelt extender wasn't big enough. If you can't wear a seat belt they're not flying your liability ass. Second, the wheel chairs they had were plastic and would break under her weight, so they couldn't roll her down the tunnel to get on the plane.
If you're that large, you should be traveling with your own personal wheelchair, seatbelt extender, and whatever medication you need-- people need to take responsibility for their own self. Why didn't she go to a hospital over there for treatment? Something tells me the reason she died isn't from her lack of treatment, it's from her life-threatening diseases.
Everyone is always looking for someone to blame. Vilma is to blame for her own death. Why would an airline want to run the risk of being sued, when there is an emergency landing and they can't get her safely off the aircraft? Or if there is turbulence and she gets injured from not having a seatbelt. The airline was just doing their job and minimizing liability-- sued anyway though.
