Should obese people have to pay for two plane tickets?

  • You pay for extra bags, you should also pay for extra seat space.

    You're paying for space on a plane, plain and simple. You pay for an additional bag if you decide to bring more than can fit into one bag, and the same should go for the plane seat. A plane is a finite space, and everyone deserves to be comfortable. Air travel isn't a right, it's a privilege that not everyone can afford. If you'd like to do so, then pay for the space you take up - be it in the main cabin or in the baggage cabin.

  • Pay for space

    If you physically take up two seats you shall pay for two seats. This has nothing to do with discrimination or being rude it's just a fact. If a smaller person stays behind because an obese took their seat. How is that fair? It isn't fair you have to buy two tickets.

  • If the personal space of an individual requires two seats then two plane tickets should be purchased.

    Obesity of an individual should not be an automatic qualifier for the requirement of purchasing two plane tickets. That being said, if an individual's physical space exceeds the confinement of one seat then there should indeed be a requirement of such in the regard that if one is in the purchased physical space of another, whether this be an arm or fully over into the other seat, then it would be unfair and unjust for a passenger to suffer the lack of a physical boundary simply due to another person's belief that their body does not require two seats. Simply put, if one is of such a physical state that it impedes upon the physical allotment of another passenger's seat then one should be required to purchase two plane tickets.

  • Airlines should not victimize obese people

    I believe that obese people should not pay for two airline tickets, unless they are traveling with someone. I can see the merit in charging by one's size or weight, but unless the charges are uniform across all the passengers, so that people who are smaller and lighter pay less, I do not believe that singling out obese people is fair.
