To me it's not as much a matter of weight as it is the fact that if someone who is morbidly obese is in the seat next to you, you lose 1/4 of your seat and the "space" you paid for, more or less.

I've seen the same thing happen with men who are excessively tall. They just hang over into the seats on either side because they don't fold up. One man was taking up half the woman's seat next to him, and she didn't look like they even knew each other.
