Would you pay more?


 
A photo of an obese airplane passenger has inspired a passionate debate as to whether or not overweight fliers should pay more on AOL.com

The photo in question is believed to have been taken from American Airlines. We spoke with American Airlines media spokesperson Tim Smith to get his take on the situation. Here's what he had to say:

"We are currently in the process of looking into this situation. We do have a policy that tries to be flexible for passengers of size. Certainly no passenger would ever be allowed to fly on American Airlines in any way that obstructs the aisles of the aircraft, and all passengers must be properly seat-belted—part of the FAA rules. It is very obvious in the photo that the aircraft is not inflight at the time the photo was taken—other passengers are still boarding and several overhead bins are still open. We can assure you that all passengers on this flight were safely and comfortably accommodated, and that no FAA rules were broken."

Tim says that they don't "routinely charge for an extra seat unless there are simply no other options.

So I bring the article and photo to you, with some questions

Does this man violates FAA standards for safety?

Should he pay his share. Similar to those who try to bring a 100 lb suitcase? Or more than 2 bags? They have to pay more for the extra weight don't they?

Should there be a "demo" seat at the check in counter—, similar to the bag sizer? don't fit? Pay more.

OR

Is it discrimination to charge obese passengers for 2 seats?

Are the seats on airlines just too small because airlines are greedy? trying to fit as many people as possible into one flight?

thoughts? comments?

Since I've only flown once since I was a toddler and never been on an international flight I might not be the best to comment on this but that never stops me :)
I consider myself to be quite overweight and I fitted like a glove in my seat lol

But seriously, I think the weight issue is interesting since it all should boil down to one thing and one thing only, the safety of everyone on board.
Maybe it should cost extra if you weigh over a certain amount and btw how much are the safety belts build to withstand?

I think you've raised some interesting questions here.

Just read today that both Air France and Finnair are charging obese people for two tickets due to the extra weight.
