Accommodating obese people
Airline obesity policies differ in degree and detail, but decree essentially that if you don't fit in a seat with an extension seatbelt and the armrest down, you will be charged for two seats or removed from the plane.
Most airlines recommend that if you think you will be too large for your seat, you should purchase a second seat at the time you make your original booking (or, of course, buy a ticket in first or business class).
Some airlines will offer a discount on the second seat or refund the cost if the plane isn't full, but in many cases obese passengers simply have to pay twice the price as other fliers.
Obesity is a hot-button topic, and many will argue that some big folks simply need to pare back on the super-size fries.
On a broader level, is it fair or logical for the airlines to keep shrinking airplane seats even though more than one-third of American adults are now obese?It is doing them a favor, and one you shouldn’t have to do.You are granting them the courtesy of pointing out something that they probably should have thought of already, or at least should be grateful to know about now.) You can tell the host/ess “Three for a table please” to avoid being seated at a booth.
Is there a policy that parties of less than four have to sit in booth?Who decides if someone fits in the seat, and when do they decide? Will there someday be a BMI (Body Mass Index) field on booking sites?
