According to the Greenwich resident, he was booked on the 3:50 p.m. flight from LaGuardia to Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday when a flight attendant announced that the plane was 600lbs overweight.
Gary said airline staff first asked for volunteers to leave the plane, and after getting no takers, they began randomly kicking people and he was one of the unlucky ones.
“I bought the ticket in February,” Gary told the Greenwich Time. “So it wasn’t like I was on standby or anything.”
Gary said staff offered him and three others, including a pair of team employees from the New York Mets, a voucher for future travel on Delta and seats on a later flight.
Gary, who said taking a voucher was like “getting food poisoning at a restaurant and going back again,” was rebooked on a 6:30 p.m. flight.
What a BIG baby!!! Idiot, it’s not personal someone had to go….the plane was not 2lbs overweight, it was 600lbs overweight!!! If staff had allowed the plane to takeoff with that much weight and then the plane went down I am sure your family and others would have filed lawsuits.
Get over yourself; your teeth alone were 500lbs!!
