Get off my 'plane fatty
Good, if I got anyone too fat in the seat next to me I'd point blank refuse to lift the arm rest betweens seats, if they don't fit they should pay twice. I've heard stories of the cabin crew making passengers lift the armrest between seats so the fat people can fit. Ironically you're supposed to lower the arm rest for landing and take off……Posted 8 years agojon1973Member
On planes fuel is a significant cost of the overall flight, and it's pretty weight dependant, I don't want to subsidise some fatty. Should make it a green issue, then it'll trump the human rights element…….
So is it just fat people who you think should pay more, or people who are just heavier than you? what height / weight ratio would you set the bar at?
If you want to make it a green issue, why not get rid of crappy (heavy) in flight magazine and duty free drinks etc. All those litre bottles of spirits must weigh a ton.Posted 8 years agoBigDummySubscriber
Awesome. Let's have another wide-ranging discussion of how awful large people are. Could someone post some BMI charts? We've already had a suggestion that fatties be shot out of a trebuchet, so we'd better have an in-depth discussion of what counts as a fatty. Then someone can give us a sob story about how his enormous mate eats because he's unhappy and therefore shouldn't be in a zoo, or whatever the current proposal is, and with a little luck we'll have some off-forum emailed threats of Borat-style naked-hairy-man-arse based violence before the afternoon is out. It's gonna be GREAT. 🙄 😀
I flew from Namibia to South Africa once. In the next but one seat was a gentleman who was slightly too substantial for the seats. He had 2 whole seats, but only really needed 1.2 seats. I've never had so much arm-room, it was lovely. 🙂Posted 8 years agoduckmanMember
Should have a hoop at checkin, say 2 ft in diameter. If you can get through it then jobsagoodun otherwise ££££££
Arrrghhhh…no more please! 😀

Seriously though, if the issue here is that large people might hold up the rest of the passengers in the event of an evacuation, perhaps they should be seated in the middle of the plane in the seats farthest from the exits.
By large I mean overweight, not someone who is a 6ft 4 rugby player type.Posted 8 years agodeadlydarcyMember
Fantastic, I mean, what a great idea. Demonise the fatties, stick them in their own pen at the back of the airplane. Maybe even in wheeled cages, a la Hannibal so that the pilot can have them moved shortly after take off to balance the plane.
These measures will really really help fat people to realise the errors of their ways and just bloody lose weight. Well…they will won't they?

On one of my many flights to the UK last year I ended up in economy sitting beside jabba the hutt. **** me, this poor dude was spilling over the top and bottom of the seat. It wasn't actually funny as I honestly coudl not actually sit in my seat without leaning all the way over to give the guy room. It was incredibly uncomfortable and quite stressful actually bearing in mind i had 12 hours of it. Once we took off i squeezed out (he honestly couldn't move so i had to climb over him) and collared a air hostess where i deliocately pointed out that having paid full whack for an economy ticket i expected a complete economy seat please ! She was very apologetic and 10 minutes later appeared and shunted me into premium economy (I am a very frequent flyer you know dahlings !). WHich was fine but i did feel sorry for anyone who has to put up with that. If you can;t fit into the width of a seat (and seat widths are published) then you shoudl be paying or be accomodated in 2. So there fat people. And I also subscribe to the 'total weight' theory – you and your bags get, say 110kg anything over you pay for.Posted 8 years agoDenDennisMember
This fred is hilariously funny! but come on guys, have you seen what ryanair have taken out of their flights? he'd get rid of an engine if he could. do you think he hasnt run the idea of charging by total weight by big shot solicitors??Posted 8 years ago
in my view if weight is the cost issue with luggage, it should be with passengers but this no doubt wont get by the legal bods 😀
