Fat People Pay More - Airlines May Start Treating Passengers Like Freight

Imagine two scales at the airline ticket counter, one for your bags and one for you. The price of a ticket depends upon the weight of both. That may not be so far-fetched.

  1. Good. These fat asses take up so much room as it is they should have been charged by the pound years ago. Ever sit by a 300+ pound person on a plane. Most stink of sweat and bile. You cannot help but to have their fat rolls lay on top of you and most cannot breathe so you have to listen to them wheeze and make all kinds of noises that sound like they are in respiratory distress. Maybe charging by on buses and taxing the hell out of them by the pound will cover just a small portion of what 90% of these fat arses cost tax payers in recovering money from clinics and hospitals and higher insurance premiums. That is right... obese people cost people who make better health choices a lot of friggen money. More than smokers and drinkers combined.

  2. what was just said was a lil harsh but in all reality there is alot of truth to it. i know that some ppl have medical problems but most are just lazy. they should make larger seats on the plane and have the overweight ppl sit there and they should have to pay extra for that seat means how it would be taking up more space.
