“It’s 2024, Bodies Are Changing, So Planes Should Too” Woman Urges Airlines For Wider Seats

5 months ago

A social media influencer with curves is unhappy with airlines, requesting them to make bigger seats as her backside doesn’t fit comfortably. She shared a video illustrating the difficulties she encountered on airplanes, and it gained widespread attention.

Gracie Bon, a 26-year-old from Panama, shared a video on Instagram discussing the challenges she faces as a plus-sized woman during flights. In the clip, she appears frustrated while trying to fasten her seatbelt on the plane.

Subsequently, she walks through the airport on a moving walkway, smiling and displaying her figure. The influencer voiced her perspective, stating, “Airplanes should have bigger seats.”

Gracie further elaborated, saying, “So today I had a flight and even if I was flying in first class, I couldn’t fit on the airplane — so this is a petition for all the airlines so big girls like me can fly.”

The social media personality noted ’’It’s not my fault I have a butt this big’’ and urged the airline to take this into account when determining seat sizes. She pleaded, “Please, just make them bigger.”

Gracie’s Instagram video attracted widespread attention, amassing over 89,000 likes. However, a considerable number of people disagreed with her viewpoint and expressed their opinions.

One individual suggested, “Buy two seats instead of one; clearly, you’ve got plenty of money to afford them.” Another commenter remarked, “Whose fault is it? No one forced you to undergo surgeries.”

Many people promptly rallied behind the influencer. One supporter stated, “Agreed. I definitely need a larger seat and a seatbelt that doesn’t have such a hard buckle.” Another person stood up for Gracie, noting, “The only surgery she has had was a tummy tuck. Her hips are naturally that large.”

After her first video had gone viral, Bon posted another video saying, ’’Airplanes are too small for big people’’, she continued, ’’It’s 2024, bodies are changing so planes should too.’’

Celebrating our individuality is fantastic, yet sometimes it can bring challenges. Consider Rubi, a young woman whose hips expanded threefold after having eight children. She experienced a remarkable change through surgery.
