GetHuman3844414's customer service issue with American Airlines from October 2019

Help with my American Airlines issue
The issue in GetHuman3844414's own words
International * hour flight USA to UK, I purchased a preferred seat at around $**** between. I found myself sat next to an obese man.His upper body encroached onto my space making me have to lean out into the aisle thus putting me in the way of (being knocked by) the flight attendants passing by. At I read that the "American Airlines’ Extra Space Policy*...requires passengers to purchase a second seat if they need a seatbelt extension and their body “extends more than * inch beyond the outermost edge of the armrest.” ...and "If the airline can’t accommodate you on your scheduled flight, the airline will let you purchase two seats on a later flight for the same price as your original seats." *Consideration is given to the obese passenger. *I am *'**" tall woman age ** and weighing *** lbs at time of flight. May i request a refund for the preferred seat?
