Passenger Booted from Flight to Make Room for a Two-Seater Teen [News]

[CBS News] A petite Sacramento woman was bumped from a Southwest Airlines flight to make room for an extra-large 14-year-old who required two seats.

The 5-foot-4, 110-pound woman, who was flying standby from Las Vegas to Sacramento, was buckled up and ready to go when the teen arrived late to the gate, reported the [Sacramento Bee]. She was surprised when flight attendants said she would have to deplane to make room for the teen.

When the woman – who did not give her name to the paper for fear of being perceived as insensitive – expressed irritation, airline employees began to “berate” her for complaining, she told the newspaper.
