Washington: Blind Side star Quinton Aaron was reportedly not allowed in a US Airways jet in Philadelphia for a one-hour flight to Rochester for being too fat. The 29-year-old actor who stands six-feet and eight-inches and 500 lbs said that he usually buys two seats when he flies but only one was available.

Aaron said that the passenger who was booked in the coach seat next to him was blindsided and could not hold himself onto the cushion because of his seat belt.
The American actor said that he had a word with the flight attendant and he was politely asked to leave the plane and then booked on a later flight where he secured two seats. Aaron added that he certainly needed two seats and it worked out for the better, as his knees weren’t pushed into the back of the metal on someone else’s seat.
