Mixed re­sponse to law­suit by flyer who had to sit next to an obese pas­sen­ger

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

“I re­ally hope this man wins. Hope­fully air­lines will then have to change their poli­cies on over­weight and obese pas­sen­gers just as Samoan Air have done. If you can’t fit in one seat then you need to buy two. There should be a seat at check-in /bag­gage drop for over­weight pas­sen­gers to be checked on. If you can’t fit prop­erly in your seat, you are a haz­ard to other pas­sen­gers and you need to buy two. That sim­ple. Also seat ex­ten­ders should not be avail­able.”


“Oh please let me lis­ten to this one in court, can’t wait to hear the end­ing I hope Emi­rates charge him for wast­ing their time and the other pas­sen­ger sues the guy for us­ing a pho­to­graph of him with­out his per­mis­sion. The next time emi­rates staff on board have a com­plaint about a bod­ily chal­lenged per­son sit­ting next to them and they have the abil­ity to move peo­ple to busi­ness class leave the cry baby in his seat and move the larger gen­tle­man I will guar­an­tee he will be more grate­ful than the cry baby and much less trou­ble.”
