Two travelers were singled out for - get this - weight discrimination, and FORCED to get onto a scale.
Not only that, but they were then put into seats that they did NOT choose, to make sure that the mass of passengers on the plane was evenly distributed - because that would be important in making sure that the plane didn't crash.
Oh, the HORROR!
I did laugh, because it was Hawaiian Airlines. You know, the place that has 45% of its native population obese. Not to pick on them, it's a serious health issue, and they should not be shamed for something they apparently have in their genetic makeup.
It's not surprising that some of the traveling public might be a wee bit heavier than the average - or a LOT.
Come on! Placating the travelers, and pretending that their greater weight won't cause stability issues with the plane is NOT a satisfactory solution.
