Prevented from First-Class: A Story of Discrimination in Air Travel


The explanation

The attendant took a closer look at the ticket and then explained that the airline had a policy in place that prohibited passengers from entering first class if they weighed over 200 pounds. Sarah, a curvy woman but not overweight, couldn’t believe what she was hearing.

She pleaded with the attendant, explaining that she had been looking forward to this trip for months and had saved up all her money to experience the luxury of first class. But the attendant was firm, stating that there was nothing he could do.


Feeling humiliated and discriminated against, Sarah was left with no choice but to board the plane and make her way to economy class. As she walked down the aisle, she couldn’t help but feel envious of the passengers reclining in their spacious seats, sipping champagne, and enjoying their gourmet meals.
