Should unnaturally large people have to buy 2 airplane tickets?

This dude I know just got back from Seattle, a 4 1/2 hour flight. On the flight back, he was at a window seat and the woman next to him was absolutely enormous. He ended up, literally, being pinned in. It was so bad, he could not move his arm enough to eat the snack on the plane. He had that little room to move. That just ain't right. I know it'll never happen because of the whiners of the world, but would love to see an airline make people so large they make others on the flight miserable buy two seats:cheers:....should also help them lose weight when they can't buy as many triple cheeseburgers when the plane lands:lollol:

I know what you mean though. I fit nicely into the seats but my legs don't have any room so I'm forced to always get an aisle seat and my legs are always out in the aisle. Coming back from Florida I was stuck next to this woman who should have been heading to Japan for a tournament. I was not happy.

I'm pretty sure some airlines do require 2 seats. I've seen them do it several times on that "Airlines" show (I think thats the name) on cable. I think that is Southwest Airlines thats on that show.

I love it when I do not have anyone sitting next to me at 6'6 I am miserable on a plane and I fly all the time. I do not want to have to buy two seats though.

I am so big (legs are long) that if you sit in front of me you CANNOT recline... its not even an option :redface:

I do the same thing. Some stupid woman tried to recline and it wouldn't move. A normal person would have looked behind to see whats there I would think. This stupid ho slammed back on the seat and into my knees!

That was the only time I comtemplated bitch slapping a woman.

What you should have done was kicked the crap outta the back of her seat.

For the record..yes, if youre of big proportions width wise, you should most def be required to buy a 2nd seat. This is comming from a fat ass:salut:

Some fat people think its all good and that skinny folks should adapt around them. Wrong. If someone is a pudding of a person and their rolls are going into the space I paid to sit in, damn skippy they need to buy a 2nd seat and roll over and give some space.

I'd have to agree with the general consensus here, though I've been fortunate in my many flights to never have been "the sardine".

I will add that at a reasonable 6' 0", my knees are almost always being pressed into the rails that form the tray table. I have to spread my knees just to look into the seat back pocket for the stupid SkyMall magazine.

Airlines simply don't even give enough room for average people, so why would large people be any more likely to fit? I think that even a 250lb. guy would crowd his seat neighbor. Airline seat designers have a special section in Hell for them... with very small seats.

i thought most airlines in the US required people that are unusually overweight that can not fit into one seat or a regular seatbelt, to buy 2 seats. my ex's mom is 5 foot tall and 5 foot around, she breaks every couch they buy. smokes 3 packs of GPC "light" 100's a day and drinks 12 12 oz Dr Peppers a day. in her dakota that has a bench seat, she still rolls into the middle so you can't put 3 people in there.

I have an aunt that is determined to lose weight so she can fly from TX to AK without having to buy 2 seats. nothing is more uncomfortable than being squished into a seat because the person next to you doesn't fit into theirs. It also, I would assume, be embarrassing to the person who is overweight because they know they are engaging on your space. I'm a person who likes their personal space, if i don't know you, please dont encroach on it, so if i were overweight, i wouldn't fly or i would pay the extra to get first class cause their seats are bigger.

fortunately for me i'm short so my legs don't even reach the floor when i sit in a plane so i don't have to worry about finding a spot for my legs

Yes they should. Like it was stated above, it is not fair to ME to buy a ticket and only be able to use a third of my seat because of the girthier person invading the space I paid for.
