fat guy airplane - An image of an obese passenger squeezed into an economy airline seat has reopened a debate about how airlines deal with growing numbers of oversized passengers.

The picture, posted on an aviation blog, was reportedly taken by a flight attendant to illustrate to airline managers the difficulty of dealing with passengers who cannot fit into seats. Comments below the blog entry illustrate the debate over how to deal sensitively with obese passengers while ensuring others have enough room.

In a statement, American Airlines said: “At this time American Airlines is unable to confirm whether or not the image referred to was taken by a member of flight crew but will investigate the situation internally to determine if any of the airline’s strict policies were not correctly applied.

“American Airlines’ primary concern is for the safety and comfort of its passengers and crews and consequently passengers are advised to book two seats if they are concerned that they will require them. If a flight is not full, however, passengers’ needs would be accommodated without charge wherever possible.”

Is this guy serious buying himself one seat for that flight?? Fat people ruin everything for everyone else. They’ve kept soda out of schools, pollute Redtube with videos that make me puke, and now the airline experience. How are the people at the front going to get beverages without drink cart access? For how many hours will the people sitting next to him have to listen to heavy breathing? How do you stay conscious in an airtight cabin with a guy that likely gets B.O. from turning a magazine page? How do you get to the bathroom? That guy’s cock-blocking the mile-high club.
