Should this passenger be banned ?
 
Just spotted this. He should be banned from flying. Flight attendends should not have to wipe people's bums.

Well it's a tad hard to disagree with you. So Yes.

In some reports one of the pilots was involved in the bum wiping too- due to no male CC

id quit!

No, he shouldn't be banned from flying.
But he does need to recognise that he has a serious disability.
He needs an assistant, which is his problem to arrange.
His disability (size and lack of agility) may render him unfit for flying, particularly long haul.

He certainly should not just book a flight and show up without declaring his special needs, and I could well understand EVA banning him based on his past failure to alert them to his needs!

It's more than just a past failure to inform them of his needs, he's reported to have defecated in his seat on a previous flight with them.

Setting aside this particular incident, the issue of massively overweight passengers being seated in economy needs to be looked at properly. I've experienced being sat next to a passenger who has spilled out of his seat into mine on a couple of occasions. Fortunately, on the longer of the two (LHR - SYD), the passenger in question was moved to a spare premium economy seat. The idea of being forced to lean out into the aisle for 20 plus hours was frightening.

Frankly I'm surprised any FA would agree to such a request. "Wipe it yourself or sit in it sir, your call!"
Given the pax's outrageous attitude and behaviour I'd have no hestation in bnning him.
If I were the airline I'd be considering a court case for harassement too.

If I were the Flight Attendant I would be sueing for damages. I'm sure that wiping men's backsides in not in their normal work remit. I hope she washed her hands before serving the food to passengers.

I try not to use the toilet when flying but long haul you may have no choice; in any case if I was as 'far gone' as this bloke to be unable to wipe my own @$$ I simply wouldn't fly.

Nonsense has it right - he should have a carer to look after him if he's too obese to fly alone. Perhaps people should be assessed somehow before flight and seats allocated accordingly. I'm not sure whether airlines would hand out upgrades simply because some people are too fat to sit in an economy seat though. Make them pay the difference when they check in?
If he defecated on a seat on a previous flight, then Eva should have put him on a ban list.
