Default Re: SW airlines Overweight fare

Below is what was in an article on

Starting June 26, Southwest passengers who are booked on full flights and need seat belt extensions, or whose bodies extend beyond the 18 3/4 inch cushions, will be required to purchase a second seat, said Christine Turneabe-Connelly, a Southwest spokeswoman.

I don't have a strong opinion on this - If I am uncomfortable sitting next to a person who is I feel "invading my space" or my "comfort zone", I just politely and quietly (without the passenger's knowlege) ask the flight attendant to be moved. It has only happened once to me in all the hundreds of flights I have ever taken.
