Fat People Will Have To Pay Double To Fly!
Don't you just hate it when you're seated on a flight next to a morbidly obese person, and their rolls of flesh spill onto your lap and interfere with your coffee drinking?
Or perhaps you're a morbidly obsese person and you feel wildly embarrassed when your own bodily overkill does that to someone else for nine hours of airborne torture?
Well, on Air France-KLM, that won't be happening anymore starting February 1!
And that's because they're going to make any fattie who can't safely fill a single seat and ONLY a single seat pay 75% for the adjacent seat as well (unless the flight isn't fully booked, in which case you'll get a refund and can nab a year's worth of AcuTrim and some crackers with it.)
Is this a reasonable solution that's designed for everyone's benefit or a crass bit of exploitation that seems begging for lawsuits?
