Southwest will charge large fliers extra fare

Southwest will charge large fliers extra fare

Quote:
The airline, which operates out of 58 U.S. cities and is the largest carrier at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, will begin charging "persons of size" for two seats if they think they may not fit comfortably in one.

Ticket agents will not have weight and height requirements to follow when determining who can comfortably fit into one seat or who needs to purchase another ticket, said Southwest spokeswoman Christine Turneabe-Connelly.
It's about time that an airline had the guts to do this.

They should charge some nominal fee ($5 or something) for each seatbelt extender too!

I'm picturing a little metal frame with a "your ass must fit in this space" sign on it which they can put next to the carryon bag sizing tool near the check-in desks.

Agreed with dbaker, though. It's about damn time an airline did this.
