Default Paying Extra For Being Fat

Rube Canoza unstable dwarf exuded foul odor :

I don't doubt the airlines would boot a passenger of any
size off a plane if the passenger stank. *Airlines already have booted
passengers for wearing clothing with offensive text on them, and the
text wasn't even what might have been deemed obscene. *Foul odor
shouldn't be a problem at all for them to exclude.


Were that the case, Rube, then neither your foul dwarfin self nor the
stale lardy oaf known as Stain de STD should expect to be flying
anywhere, anytime soon.

Except maybe into jail.

Paying Extra For Being Fat
As summer vacations begin, some passengers on Southwest Airlines will
be pulled aside and, because of their weight, asked to buy a second
ticket. This controversial policy pits the commercial interests of the
airline against the dignity of overweight fliers and raises the issue
of whether anti-discrimination laws should be applied to obese people.


I'm not a lawyer but as I understand it being extra large is not a
protected right under Federal Civil Rights laws in the USA.
IMHO if you overflow into my space on a plane then maybe one of us
should pay for two seats of space. What gives a large person right to
the space I paid for. If you need my space then pay for it.

What discussions like this always seem to ignore is
the fact that the airlines are NOT out to enforce anyone's
idea of what their "rights" are or what is "just" via their
pricing schemes. The bottom line is that they are always,
always going to try to set up their pricing to maximize
revenues/profits, just like any business. People can whine
all they want about what others "should" pay for, but it will
have exactly zero impact until and unless the business in question
- in this case, the airline industry - comes to believe that the
proposed change will have a net positive impact on their
bottom line. Which, you know, is exactly how it's supposed
to be.
