Total bullshit. If you let yourself get that fat and disgusting and you need two seats, then you should be paying for two seats. Why do we have to pay for your obesity??? Do they get a loveseat for the same price as a La-Z-Boy lounger too???

I am all for this.....besides....I think you would think differently if you had to sit beside the person who was too big for their seat, making your trip and their trip uncomfortable. Maybe its time the airlines made larger seats.

lol as funny as that sounds, let me explain:


As mentioned in the thread, some people are obese NOT by choice. They will eat healthy, exercise, etc....but their weight is affected by something they cant control (ie: genes, chemical balance, thyroid problems, etc....)

I think that people who dont have a CHOICE in being large should be treated fairly (as a disablity)......but people who are just lazy and chow down on Whoppers and White castle should not benefit from this. Like Kai Lee said, someone will have to pay for it, and I dont think its fair to pay for a person's lifestyle choices.

In other words, people who have a physicians review that their obesity, in fact, can NOT be controlled, should have more freedoms than fat ass heffers.


Fully agree on this, but unfortunately some fat smart fucks out there will get the note forged so they can still get the 2 seats

Pathetic is a society that allows people to consume so much, and be so fat. Maybe one community service hour for every extra pound; fucking streets would be squeaky clean.

Wow at some of the responses.

How the fuck is this bothering you all so much? I doubt any of you fly that often for this to be such a big issue. I fly quite frequently and I doubt Im ever going to be bothered or delayed by the fact that "oh no, one person is taking up two seats!! What am I gonna do?!?! WILL THERE BE SEATS LEFT?!?"

You guys are pathetic; I love how people have such strong views on shit thats actually going to have very little effect on them - if that.

Its so sad how quickly these views would change if "obese people" were to be changed with something else...you know, another type of DISABILITY.

In short: this does not affect most of you, youre an idiot if you honestly believe obesity is not a disability, and the overall lack of knowledge in this thread concerning the biological aspect of the topic is stupefying.

It's not a disability. I don't remember seeing one fat ass in a hundred when I was ten, now, it's every third. It's a lifestyle choice. We should push people to be better by not accomodating their laziness and gluttony.

I know some very large people who probably eat better and work out more then 90% of the people here. If you honestly think that larger people are simply larger because they eat junk food and are lazy then you are a complete fucking idiot.

I guess no one remembers the good 'ol days when fat people didn't roam the streets like hoards of insatiable zombies. I do, it's called the seventies. pre-tim hortons, pre-mcdicks, pre-you get my fucking drift. People are fat out of their own doing, end of story. Maybe, just maybe, five percent of the fat slobs out there are actually legitimately fat, the rest, lazy fucking slobs.

Are they large enough that they would require TWO fucking seats on an airplane? You guys keep saying this, but none of you make the claim that these 'friends' would ever need two seats. We all know the difference between someone who is big, but solid and healthy, probably like these people you describe, and someone who is 450 pounds because they eat too much and watch CSI 24 hours a day. The ratio of people who are large enough to require two seats, and actually LIVE a healthy lifestyle, compared to those who require the extra seat because they are lazy is something liiiiiike... 0:~ Because they just don't exist.

I've never, in my entire life, met someone who lives a healthy lifestyle, and is so fat that they would take up TWO seats of ANYTHING. I know plenty of people who are fat and blame their genes, but do absolutely nothing about it, and I do know of ONE case in my personal life that supports most the idea that obesity is primarily a result of a poorly-chosen lifestyle.

One of my good friends through high school has that there 'fat gene' you guys keep calling a disability, through high school, he was an easy 350+ pounds and possibly DID require two seats on a plane (he managed just fine in a movie theatre though). 7 years later, he's working out, still big, at around 250, but there's no way he would ever need a second seat ANYWHERE. His change in lifestyle brought him down to a healthier size, despite his genetics. Genetics are an EXCUSE for lazy people who eat too much.

Get off your fucking ass and lose the weight, or suffer the consequences of your lifestyle decisions. Being fat is NOT a disability.

That all being said, I don't fly enough that I give two shits whether fat people should have to pay for two seats. If you ask me, it should be based on the total weight that you are bringing onto the plane, regardless of how many seats you need. More weight = higher cost to the airline, so it's only fair that we would be charged per pound (or kilogram I suppose here in Canada)

Umm I fly to and from Shanghai at least twice a year on Air Canada and am bothered by the fact we'll have to pay for these people getting two seats for the price of one with HIGHER TICKET PRICES.

It's bullshit....if they take up two seats they should have to pay for the extra space their whopper infested lardasses use.

What next? They get two meals for the two seats they take up?

I would rather have that 400 + pound person take up two seats on a plane then have them squished into one seat and have to sit beside them for hours on a plane being completely uncomfortable.

There is a lot more behind why a large number of these people are obese....unless you have walked in their shoes you really don't understand the psychological issues that most of them go through every day. I've been in their shoes and it wasn't because I ate like shit and was lazy.

The one out of every thousand flights where there is someone who will need more then one seat will not increase the cost of your flight. There are a lot of other things that will increase your flight before that. Flying twice a year is not often at all.

I didn't include the monthly flights I take within Asia. now that it's easier for them to fly more obese people will fly hence taking up seats that could have been bought and generated revenue for the airlines.
Anything that can make money for the hurting airlines they'll jump on and raising ticket prices because of this is something they could very well go for.

I agree.. when you buy a seat on a flight you are buying space. If you require 2 spaces you should pay for it. Whats next? Saying that trucks should pay the same as cars to park even though they are bigger? As a skinny person can i claim discrimination for not having the same ability to spread out so to speak on a flight??

On the same note, as a relations move by the airlines id at least offer the second seat at half price for fatties or something. But not for free.

Now building a system where only obese people who became that way by being lazy, depressed, obsessed with food, etc should pay for 2 airline tickets as opposed to the large folks that are born that way would be impossible to determine for every individual and cost way too much for the airline to do. It's a hard subject and both sides have good arguments.


I see your point but we all have physical limitations by our very nature. We should know what they are and act accordingly. If you are too short to ride this ride or too fat to sit in one seat, thats life. Why should these companies or other's pay for it? Is "fat" the next victim's group that society is going to have to bend over backwards for?

I don't know why there is such a debate about this. You take two cookies, you pay for two cookies. You go to the grocery store and you need two buggies, you take 2 quarters and you get two buggies. You don't say "well my groceries wont all fit into one so I should get an extra one for free". You take two pair of pants, you pay for two pair of pants.You take two seats, you pay for two seats. You take two of anything, you pay for two.

But this is canada where everyone is a victim. So we have to cater to these "victims". Just like how we have pregnant parking for those who cant walk to the front door but somehow can walk around the mall without problems, soon we will have fat parking im sure.

Errr, that wasn't one of the options. If they can't fit in one seat, they'll get two, but they'll have to pay for the second seat.

Oh cry me a fucking river, seriously. I could go on for hours about the "psychological issues" I had to deal with when I was in school. One of the most important things I ever learned in life was that you always have a choice: you can either flail frantically, cry for help, and drown in your own pathetic depressing issues, or you can take responsibility for your life and deal with them. And it's unbelievable how many people I meet who still don't understand that it's a choice.

Everybody has issues. Everybody. The difference is in whether one views them as mere challenges or hopeless and crippling disabilities. If there are blind, deaf, and terminally ill people who can handle their issues and still be productive members of society without imposing their problems on everyone around them, then so can the fucking fatties.

Put the tub of ice cream back in the freezer, get off your ass, and walk around the block for half an hour. No excuses.

I'm not the type of person to point and laugh, I think that everybody should be entitled to live his or her life as he or she sees fit (and be prepared to deal with the consequences, of course), but it really fries me when I'm expected to feel sympathy for someone who made poor choices. I don't, I won't, and how dare you tell me I'm symbolic of society's ills for my callousness; it's your fault, not mine and not society's.

I don't, I won't, and how dare you tell me I'm symbolic of society's ills for my callousness; it's your fault, not mine and not society's.

Bottom line is why should the fatties get to pay less for being a glutton all their lives? I wouldn't mind if the fat ppl who get this deal actually have a medical condition like a glandular problem or whatever its called and doctors have diagonosed it. But those lazy fat bastards who do nothing but eat and get fat I have no sympathy for.

This reminds me when I was in Vegas I was walking up this slight upramp to a show and this elephant ahead of me was nearly dying walking this incline. He gets to the top and complains to security that it is too steep and he needs a wheelchair to go the rest of the way, which was about 5 metres to his seat. And then I saw him outside the show having a beer, burger and a smoke. How can u feel sympathy for these people??

Anything that can make money for the hurting airlines they'll jump on and raising ticket prices because of this is something they could very well go for.


Flights within Canada only yo, your prices won't hurt. Yet.

I know but when I come back for my home leave I fly all over the country to visit family and friends.

Not anymore if ticket prices go up(and they will). People will just have to make do with a visit every few years or so...

well, who decided to make the cookie so small that you need two? who decided to make the buggies so small that you need two? who decided to make the pants so flimzy that they will fall apart faster so you need two? and who decided on the size of the seat?

i personally don't think that it's that much of a problem for the fat person to have the two seats IF anyone can choose to order two seats but pay for one. lol, if they don't allow this, than they are discriminating against skinny people.

if airlines want to avoid the problem, they should have one fat person seat on the plane, if no fat person flies that flight, the seat can be given to someone else.

Yes, and if you want to put your two year old baby in that seat without having to pay $500 for it so she can come and be a flower girl at her auntie's wedding then so be it Just pissed that Izzy has to pay but fatties don't.

I am sure I have posted this before but my take on all this is to have flights paid by weight - let's face it - the fuel surcharges are ridiculous so let's all stand on a huge scale with our luggage and coats and pay per kilo - absolutely the fairest way to go about it. I would welcome it in fact, would really incentivise me to lose a few pounds before my trips home then I wouldn't give a fuck if fatty had a whole aisle!

And it's unbelievable how many people I meet who still don't understand that it's a choice.

Everybody has issues. Everybody. The difference is in whether one views them as mere challenges or hopeless and crippling disabilities.


i hate myself for saying this but I totally agree with you.

Blacks, jews and women don't have a say (well, sex-changes I suppose, but you're still a woman even with a fake peen) in being blacks, jews, or women. So it wouldn't be fair to do so.

Fat people can exercise to fit in one seat. You still haven't told me that those fatties you know that work out and are healthier than 90% of us actually require 2 seats. Do they? Because I'm VERY skeptical.

As far as the 2 seats for one deal, I don't see general ticket prices going up that much. Most fat people who would require two seats are probably embarrassed enough to go out in public, let alone try to fit their fat-ass on a plane. Whether it's cheaper or not, I don't think it's the PRICE keeping fat people off the airlines.

exactly, imagine if people that ODed, got liver cancer because they drink like morons or get lung cancer because they smoke like chimnees would not be covered by the health system, that would devastate most TAs here


They shouldn't be covered. But they are, just like fat people. If you're an idiot and you choose to live a lifestyle that leads to huge health problems down the road, the people who've chosen to live healthy lifestyles shouldn't have to cover your ass for being an idiot. Most TAs here are diehard liberals, so your comment IS correct. They WOULD shit a brick.
