    Fat people and plane seats

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/nationa...0LmpkpXtA7tXSP

    How do you guys feel about this article? How do you guys feel about fat people in general?

    Personally I have nothing against them, but I feel if you're taking up that much space paying for two seats seems fitting. It's only fair to the other passengers and it'll save the fat person some embarrassment.

    The way I feel about fat people in general is disgusted. Not as much by their bodies, but by their lack of control and will. Putting the burger down and jogging isn't as hard as they make it seem. It's really getting ridiculous how people allow themselves to balloon to a quarter ton in weight. People are calling it a disease but I don't see it that way I see it as a choice.

    About the article, not much, it mentions that Airliners deal with the people in a case by case basis. That's the best course of action I believe.

    Fat people in general, depends, some people are fat due to health and mental problems.

    But I do agree that if the person is able they should try and become more healthier, like you said its a "choice", and if they chose to be like that, I have no gripes against that.

    "............. In the last decade, several pilots and airline crews have anonymously reported to the FAA their concerns with fat passengers, and in 2003 a captain was replaced by his airline after he refused to take off with a 600-pound paraplegic passenger he feared couldn't be safely evacuated from the plane.

    Two fat people in an airline's emergency-exit row rendered the exit "useless," reported a pilot in another anonymous FAA report that also doesn't name the airline.

    "One of the ladies was so large that she physically wouldn't be able to exit the aircraft through the emergency exit," wrote the pilot, who was a passenger on the 2004 flight.

    "I believe this to be a safety compromise." ................."


    Don't quite know what to say.

    Lol, sadly there's nothing us Americans can say to refute this.

    This is probably a touchy topic because I'm sure there are plenty of fat people on this forum but all I can say to those people is drop the weight, you'll feel a lot better. Who really wants to be fat?
