Still, I don't think that this is a good idea. My guess is that this would only make things worse for travelers. - salaryguru

It would discourage fat people like me from traveling. Even more so than it all ready is. What I mean by that is that airline travel is all ready uncomfortable for fat people because we don't fit in the seats and the seat belts don't fit around us properly. There is also not enough leg room and our bodies and appendages bang up against the seat in front of us and don't rest comfortably in the narrow seats provided.

I would be more than happy to forgoe airline travel in order to make it more affordably and comfortably for thinner people. I hate it anyway. Ya'll can have it.
