I think it is fine that she had to have two seats, but they need to be next to each other. I thought that would be a "duh" thing.

EDIT: Reading a link to another article, they did this not once but TWICE! Time to switch airlines.

If the person is too large for one seat, then they should pay for a second seat, ideally one that is right next to the first one. Having two seats not next to one another is rather useless, unless of course the top half of her can survive without the bottom half, and the bottom half can survive without the top half. If that's the case, then sure, go for it, but for most humans, this isn't possible.

I don't see any problem with this.
I mean if you don't fit in one sit, buy 2. I would not want to be seating next to someone who is all over my seat.

Fly a different airline. Jetstar has an awful history of customer dissatisfaction and bad customer service anyway.

Oh ok I didn't see that... They made her buy the one in the isle next to it didn't they??
But still if they would of made her buy the one next to her I still think that would of been OK.

Way to go!!! Let's give one person two seats not next to each but across from each other!! If I had been her, I would have sat in the lane and insisted on sitting there the whole flight!

Re: Jetstar charges passengers by the pound - May 7th 2009, 09:47 PM

eh. i thnk the lady is being ridiclous, she didn't want to pay for the seat and kicked up a fuss. no wonder they got a bit vindictive, i kinda thing it's funny, but im not over weight so maybe i dont sypmathise a lot.

But on a slightly seperate note i agree that they should have to pay for the extra seat. Because companys lose money otherwise if fat people fly

Say she refuses to pay (or files a lawsuit because of it), as does another 3 or 4 fat people on the flight, then you're left with up to 4 seats that could've been filled and paid for by another person and the company would have then lost 4 fares thanks to 4 fat people. I mean it'd result in companys wanting to have "no fat people" flying policys.

I am pretty curious as to how this occured though. I imagine there is somthing we are missing. Because im prety sure if she was going to pay for the 2 seats and asked for them next to eachother that she could easily do that, you just book 2 seats next to eachother. Unless she waited until she was boarding to say she wanted two in which case it mightve been the only one left or somthing.

I agree with Delilah there is probably another part to this story...
