VIDEO: World’s Tallest Woman Flies for the First Time
For the first time, Rumeysa Gelgi, the world’s tallest woman, just traveled by airplane for the first time. For her to be accommodated, the airline had to remove six seats so that Gelgi could fit.
As she shared on Instagram, Gelgi was extremely thankful to Turkish Airlines for all the accommodations, and for making her first trip possible. She also noted that while this might have been her first trip, it certainly won’t be her last.
The Turkish woman is 7 feet and 0.7 inches tall, which can make flying in an aircraft impossible. Thanks to Turkish Airlines, the 25-year-old is set to spend the next six months in the U.S. She has taken to social media to document this experience and share more about her time in California.
Gelgi won the Guinness World Records title of the tallest living woman in 2021 after being re-measured. Gelgi suffers from a condition known as Weaver syndrome, which makes the bones grow more rapidly and also larger than how they would normally. Rumeysa Gelgi is currently 213.6 cm (7ft 0.09 in) and was previously the tallest female teenager, before snatching the title of tallest woman in the Guinness World Records book.
