I know they teach pilots to multi-tsk and all, but this may just be taking ti a bit too far. Maybe they ought to havea law against it….

Obese passengers: I am fat and feel that I should be charged according to the my and my luggage’s weight, as should everyone else.  But if my neighbor complains and I am indeed spilling over, I should be required to pay for an extra seat if the airline can’t find me a free adjacent one.  It is extremely consider for the airlines to consider finding free seats for us chubs, and certainly not their responsibility.  Is it humiliating to be asked to move?  Maybe, but it is unfair for we chubbies to steal seat space from our neighbors-for the very most part, WE are the ones who made ourselves overweight.  But if one PAYS for two seats, they should earn double frequently flyer miles. 

Nasty cheese sandwich: At this point why would anyone expect good food from an airline and not pack a tasty backup?  OR is this a neforical plan by an international consortium of airlines to ensure there are no more obese passengers they must accomodate?  Stayed tuned….
