    Why is there not charge for excess weight/size passengers?

      Haha. It does seem a little ridiculous that a 10 stone person with say 15 kg hand baggage would be charged while a 18 stone could have 10kg and not but imagine the outrage if they did!

      One airline already does – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-22001256

        Couldn’t agree more, why should I be subsidising obese people? Passengers should pay a supplement if say their weight or BMI exceeds a certain limit.

        I know right – I can understand why such a policy is never used and how in some cases it may discriminate against people. Yet, it seems outrageous that someone who weighs 60 kg may be fined for taking more than 10kg while someone who is 120kg can take another 10!

        as a larger person I would happily pay extra for my flight ……… if I got a bigger seat. which you don’t.

        Very true – I think the airlines should introduce a sort of upgraded seat which provides more room and comfort for all.
