Obese passenger on American Airlines

How acceptable is this? The airline passenger not only blocks the aisle, he has to sit on the armrest of the seat.

This is a genuine picture taken by a flight attendant at American Airlines. The Flight Attendant took it to show her manager what was happening on the aircraft and why she was unhappy about it. Seems the guy paid for only one seat and the gate staff let him board.

You can see the Flight Attendant's point of view. Sympathize with the guy or not, he's a major safety hazard in an evacuation, a gross inconvenience for the cabin crew, and I would suggest a totally unacceptable traveling companion for the guy next to him.

In a statement, American Airlines said:
... Quote:
At this time American Airlines is unable to confirm whether or not the image referred to was taken by a member of flight crew but will investigate the situation internally to determine if any of the airline's strict policies were not correctly applied.

"American Airlines’ primary concern is for the safety and comfort of its passengers and crews and consequently passengers are advised to book two seats if they are concerned that they will require them. If a flight is not full, however, passengers' needs would be accommodated without charge wherever possible.
