Enjoying the luxury of business class seats on an 11-hour flight back to Auckland was meant to be a treat for Renell and Tere after undergoing weight-loss surgery in the city of Bangkok.
Instead, the sisters and their mother, Huhana, were left ''traumatised'' by Thai Airways staff who came at them with tape measures telling them they were ''too big'' for their business class seats.
Six months on from that ''disgusting'' experience and Huhana, 59, is still bitter about the experience.
Whilst I still think that the airline seats are too small for "normal" big persons, i.e. All Blacks, these girls are taking the piss.
1/. they shouldn't think they can go to a place that has mainly little people (compared to them) and not be treated differently, fat people are not subject to the 'Politically Correct silence', in Thailand as they are in NZ.
In NZ if you raise an eyebrow over someone's size, it's a ticket for the fatty, to go in all the women's magazines and facebook, blah
