Obese Have The Right To Two Airline Seats

Obese have right to two airline seats, one fare
Supreme Court of Canada rules for those ?functionally disabled by obesity?
updated 4:04 p.m. ET, Thurs., Nov. 20, 2008

OTTAWA - Obese people have the right to two seats for the price of one on flights within Canada, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on Thursday.

The high court declined to hear an appeal by Canadian airlines of a decision by the Canadian Transportation Agency that people who are "functionally disabled by obesity" deserve to have two seats for one fare.

The airlines had lost an appeal at the Federal Court of Appeal in May and had sought to launch a fresh appeal at the Supreme Court. The court's decision not to hear a new appeal means the one-person-one-fare policy stands.

The appeal had been launched by Air Canada, Air Canada Jazz and WestJet.

I'm sorry, but that's just straight-up bullshit.  :uhuh:

I am not usually biased by anything- but this pisses me off. If you take up two seats, pay for them please so my fare isn't raised to cover your literal ass.

I understand there are disabled people who have no choice or option, but I believe there should be special seats on each plane for them so they can have their special disabled seats and the rest who do not have an authorized condition can fucking pay for the fact they can't fucking control themselves or take a walk once a day. Jeezus H man what are we coming to?

I read this and thought...WTF.

I travel extensively and have had my share of being squeezed into a window seat while a "weight challenged individual" has taken over the middle seat, and then some...come on already!!!!

If you are obese, please have some consideration with the other passengers who are paying more than their fair share for ONE FUCKING SEAT! 

I can understand being handicapped, but Obese...WTF...stop fucking eating and you won't have this problem!  ::)

Exactly.  I would have no problem with someone who is wheelchair-bound having two seats or something, but holy hell, if you're so effing fat that you can't squeeze yourself into one seat on a plane, maybe you should be at the gym instead of flying in the first place.

I know, I was kind of feeling like I should be more sympathetic. :vc:

that shit makes me wanna go kick a fat man in the balls. maybe they should start charging for transportation by the pound like they do freight. or even better charge according to your volumic mass.

and bear in mind im a rather large individual being 6',6" and just over 260lbs, if my ass is too big to fit in a seat i dont sit there and i sure as hell dont think i should have the right to take up TWO seats and not have to pay for the second. that shits just fucking retarded.

I've got a different take on this.  I'm 6'4" and about 190.  I'm uncomfortable on a plane, at a stadium or on a bus.  Really!  Couldn't they quit trying to cram people in spaces like sardines?  The problem for me isn't paying more since we already pay out the ass, but sitting next to a big person is like sitting in the back seat of a car on the hump in between my two older brothers when I was young.
