    Default Plane seat theft

    A couple of weeks ago i was flying back home and the guy in front of me was humongous. He actually wasnt fat, but huge and well built muscleman. He took up almost three seats. well he was on the isle and overflowed into the isle a bit and the person next to him had to lean far over as he was half on top of her.
    Now does any one know if one should complain or what.
    If you pay for your seat, it includes the space in your seat as well, and not just half of it.

    Ok thread closed and understandably so.

    But there should be a thing to measure like they do with undersized kreef,
    Any over sized human cant fit into a seat

    Again, I don't see an issue with charging passengers per kg of combined person & luggage weight. And have two different seat sizes to make sure the fatties don't encroach on those who eats less.

    If you see that say 30% of your travelers are obese, then make 30% of your seats large enough to fit obese people. And if your particular flight has more than 30% obese ticket buyers, well then sorry the fat seats are sold out, just like the XXXL shirts are sometimes sold out.

    I'm fat because I eat too much, and I don't go throw a hissyfit in Edgars because most of their clothing fits normal sized people.

    It's not discriminating or offending anyone, it's simply fair and practical.

    This is swak of the airline. Do they not check the passengers when they check in? excuse me sir, you will need to pay for three seats. Rather have one unhappy camper than Three.

    The "Check - In" counters should install steel posts that one has to walk through to get to the counters. Similar to the racks that are used to measure hand luggage.
    And obese people should be seated together, in larger seats that cost more.

    I travelled back from London squashed up against the bulkhead of the windows because the 2 passengers next to me were overly large. Even the air hostess apologized that there were no other empty seats to relocate me to. 11 hours of misery for me.

    (And slightly off topic - But people that smell.. Offensive body odour should not be allowed on the plane. You want to fly? Buy a bar of soap and wash first )
    I met some crazy people.... They made me their leader.
