Fat steward loses dismissal case

The Philippine Supreme Court upheld the dismissal of an overweight Philippine Airlines steward. The court ruled on what seems to me as common sense. Being fat may be a safety risk in an aircraft especially in an emergency evacuation. I suppose the court heard expert testimony and measured the width of the aisle and the steward's girth. Let's say the steward's girth takes up > 2/3 of the aisle width, then I foresee a problem.

However, if fat flight attendants are a no no, what about fat passengers?
