United Airlines to charge a larger or obese person for 2 seats instead of 1 ?

Do you think the airlines is trying to make more money?

  • I think doing that is very disrespectful and hurtful to do that. It would probably make them lose money if anything...I know if I was overweight and they tried that on me I just wouldn't fly.

  • No, If a person can't fit in one seat, naturally they have to lift the arm up and use two seats. So it only makes since to charge for any seats you are using,right?

  • its not being mean, they lose out on money for not charging for a seat on the plane that is being used. It would be like giving away a free seat. Would it make a difference if the seat was used for a skinny person? The seat, no matter what it is used for can not be given away for free. Now if there is an empty extra seat on the plane they arent gonna charge you. You are free to use it

  • Maybe that will help people realize to take control, and lose weight, watch what they're eating, exercise some more, and live a healthy life!

  • If they're that large that they have to use 2 seats, why shouldn't they pay for it?

  • If they are using it they need to pay for it. Pretty simple really.
