in canada fat people are allowed an extra seat next to them free of charge. Must admit if a fat person was given a seat next to mine and their bulges of fat spilled into my space I would be complaining big time so in might help keep all happy in one aspect but what about other reasons for wanting extra room? no incentive for them to diet is it.

worst nightmare getting a fat one either side of you on long haul.

anyone had a problem with the passenger in the next seat.

I heard a funny story a while ago about this obese man who had to buy two seats to accommodate his extra mass, and yet had to make do with the one seat on the plane. It turned out they gave him seats on different sides of the plane!

could too many fat people affect the take off weight?

"anyone had a problem with the passenger in the next seat."

Yes, sixteen hours to the Falklands with a wailing two year old, son of a diplomat, in the next seat.

Not knocking the kid or the diplomat, kids wail, but why was I the only one, of the thousands who have done the Ascension Island bounce, to end up with him next to me?
