“But it’s a whole different thing when I’m stuck between you for three hours, with your arm on my body.

“If you need a seat belt extender, you’re too fat to sit on an airplane.”

She referred to the couple, believed to be siblings, as “the fat ones,” arguing that people her height should buy two seats or avoid flying.

dr Watson also posted a video on YouTube about her experience and the backlash she faced on social media

“We do our best to avoid uncomfortable seating situations. I can understand your disappointment that the situation was not resolved to your satisfaction.

“It appears that our flight attendants were unable to make any changes to the seating arrangement.

“I’m sure you know you’re always welcome to raise the matter with our flight attendants in the future. If we have other seats available, you can move so you can better enjoy your flight.’
