Emery Orto flew from Chicago to Las Vegas without any problems. But, he says when he and his wife tried to fly home several days later the airline said no.
Orto says it’s because of his size. He’s six feet tall and weighs 350 pounds.
Orto says he was twenty feet from getting on the plane when he was stopped.
“She hustled after me and grabbed me and said can you sit in an airplane seat with the arms down. I said yes I’ve flown many times and never had a problem. She says well you’re not flying today,” said Orto.
