Reports reaching us suggest that the winner of Di Asa, PM, was denied her flight to Dubai because of how huge and heavy she is.

This report was first sighted on Jetsanza.com, a credible online travel blog.

According to the report, Di asa winner and the two runner ups were promised a trip to Dubai as part of their prizes.

The two runner ups made it but “PM”, who is the ultimate winner could not be allowed to board the plane because of her heavyweight.

What options were available?

Though PM’s body mass is higher than her runner ups, she could have made the trip if measures were put in place. Airlines require that passengers who cannot comfortably fit in a single seat purchase additional seat(s) at the time of making bookings. It’s always advisable for plus size passengers to purchase all the needed seats in advance before the day of travel. Emirates Airlines require that passengers with special needs contact the airlines at least 48 hours before their trip.

International rules on air carriage require airlines to make sure passengers are seated with their seatbelts fastened during taxiing, take-off, and landing. So if the airline does not have the means to ensure your safety on board, definitely you cannot be allowed to fly.

Most airlines remind obese people they will have to buy an extra seat if they are too large to fit in a standard seat ( That’s if they buy from the airline’s office in person).

Buying more seats was the only option for PM to sit on the plane comfortably. But her case could go beyond just her size. Weight of passengers are also of concern to pilots. Less weight means less fuel. Pilots will have to load more fuel if they know they are carrying more weight.
