Should fat people pay more for airplane seats?

Yes.

If the seat next to them can’t be fully used by another person without having to squish some excessive body fat back to a single seat then yes. They should have to buy another seat.

It’s not only size but weight should also be considered, especially when traveling overseas and you have a weight limit for your baggage. For example, the average passenger weighs 60-80 kg and can bring 25 kg of luggage. If someone is 47 kg and they have excess kg of luggage they have to pay extra dollars. But when someone weighs 100kg and brings 32 kg luggage for free .
So the solution is to weigh the passenger and their bags combined for a ticket.

They put themselves in that condition. Now they have to pay the consequences. I am sick and tired of them crying and pretending free stuff is and “rights” all the time. They’re not special, they have to work hard like the rest of us.
Do something about your unhealthy and disgusting fatness. “WaaAaaAa but it’s too hard”. Shut up. We all struggle in life, about anything.

Possible solutions to this problem

Let’s hope they are not all seated on the same side

  1. My B.I.L. is quite large – and knows it. They are going to USA in September, have ordered a special seating arrangement which is basically 3 seats for the 2 of them. An extra charge, about 5 or 6 hundred I think he said – he is really happy with the deal.

  2. Yes. It’s also a safety issue. They should refuse to carry the very obese due to the risk to them and others in an emergency evacuation. Though that risk could be managed at huge additional cost.

    It used to be the fat complained they didn’t make clothes that fit them. Now they complain airliners don’t fit.

    • Nothing they didnt insist on bugger all, the amount of people trying to get on with those silly little trolly bags that should be checked in was amazing, but carry on bags is how you get more junk on a plane as long as it fits in the locker and you aint walking funny carrying it, no one asks questions

  4. Airfares should be charged based on weight same as they do for excess baggage.
    Say standard fare is based on x kg and lardarses pay extra if they exceed it, same with childrens fares aswell as theres now plenty of fat lil fuckers that weigh the same or more as a healthy adult.

    HP, me and wifey used to buy that seating package when we lived in aussie. Air nz think its called works deluxe? We didnt buy cuz we’re landwhales but cuz we always got night flights and we could stretch out or lie down and get a decent sleep… boss always paid for out flights, he was algood with the extra few hundred bux.
