Man possibly kicked off flight due to weight

September 8, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A suburban Chicago man says he was unfairly banned from a Southwest Airlines flight because he was too large to fit in his seat. But the airline says it banned 350 pound Emery Ortos because he became loudly belligerent when he was asked about his size.

Southwest says it was the anger issue that led to the decision not to allow Orto to fly.

The airline says it will refund his unused ticket.
