“Bodies Are Changing So Planes Should Too”. A Woman Complained That Her Butt Doesn’t Fit Into the Airplane Seat

5 months ago

26-year-old Gracie, a popular blogger known for her curvy figure, recently encountered an issue: the airplane aisle, seat, and seatbelt simply aren’t designed for individuals with her proportions. She recorded a video on Instagram, expressing her frustration and urging airlines to address her complaint.

26-year-old Gracie Bon from Panama posted a video on Instagram highlighting the difficulties she encounters as a plus-sized woman during flights.

In the video, she can be seen pouting while struggling to fasten her seatbelt on the plane. Later, she walks through the airport on a moving walkway, smiling and showcasing her figure. She said, “Airplanes are too small for big people. It’s 2024. Bodies are changing, so planes should too. I won’t lose my butt to fit on a plane. So give me another solution, or just make the seats bigger.”

She isn’t plus size, she’s got a gigantic fake backside but the rest of her is normal. The seatbelt goes across the waist area not the tops of your thighs.


Bon went on to explain, “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 model insisted that it isn’t her fault that she has a big bottom and asked the airline to consider this when it comes to their seat sizes, saying “Please just make them bigger.”

While Gracie’s Instagram video gained viral attention, accumulating over 81k likes, a significant number of individuals disagreed with her perspective and voiced their opinions.

One person wrote, “Buy two seats instead of one; clearly, you’ve got plenty of money to afford them.” Another commented, “Whose fault is it? No one forced you to get the surgeries.”

Many were quick to support the influencer. One person expressed, “Agreed. I definitely need a larger seat and a seatbelt that doesn’t have such a hard buckle.” Another fan defended Gracie, pointing out, “The only surgery she has had was a tummy tuck. Her hips are naturally that large.”

Gracie openly admitted to undergoing a tummy tuck surgery, sharing before-and-after photos. However, it’s noticeable that the woman’s thighs are naturally of that size.

She explained, “And even so, many tell me: ‘but if you had loved it, you would have stayed like this and not changed anything about you.’ The truth is that I loved my body so much that I wanted to take care of it and decided to save myself, I didn’t like my knee pain, not being able to breathe properly or rejection from my ex-partner at that time, so I did everything possible to lose weight.”

Indeed, air travel can be a real challenge regardless of one’s body shape or height. So, we understand Gracie’s disappointment.
