Too Fat to Fly

I have no doubt that this photo – allegedly taken by a stewardess – is authentic. I’ve seen a similar thing on flights, though not the massive overflow into the aisle. For the most part, the quasi-governmental airlines refuse to address this problem, thereby minimizing the service and comfort for other customers who must take on the poundage of the person next to them.

    I think it’s more reprehensible that there’s been government action coercing the airlines to charge the same fee to a less rotund person. The man in the picture is literally two airline-seats worth of people.

    Aside from the weight issue, is the amount of luggage people travel with. Americans carrying a lot of gear with them, resulting in more weight, has even a factor in plane crashes. Scary as heck.
