A couple of years ago, Actor/Director Kevin Smith was booted off a Southwest Airlines flight for being too large for one seat. A war of words began on Twitter and other social media, and the story was eventually picked up by most mainstream media outlets.
It also brought attention to a growing problem in the airline industry: customers too big for the seats. What to do? Sadly, there isn’t one policy to fit all, but each airline handles love handles a bit differently.
Our friends at Airfare Watchdog have put together a chart of Customer of Size Policies of the larger airlines.
BTW, no puns were injured in putting together this posting.
I will allow the comment section to stay open on this but please stay on subject. Any derogatory remarks about people of size will be removed.
