I don't understand this. UPS charges by the pound, so why can't Delta have weight classifications for passengers?

I thought most airlines required two seats after a certain weight?

They do. the story I read that went along with this pic said that the photo was taken by a flight attendant to show the problem with not charging bigger people for two seats

Not only that, but UPS also places a ceiling upon weight: exceed the limit and you cannot use their service.


Clearly, the fat ass in the picture really is too damn fat to properly fit in a standard airline seat or to contain his excess & thereby respect the space of his seatmates. However, I am guessing that he was able to pack himself into his own seat for the take-off. Further up the cabin there are people standing, which tells me that they're either in the air or boarding and so tubby has assumed a relatively more comfortable position as evidenced by the perch upon the seat arm.

I have about zero sympathy for the mega-huge: just so much wrong with their choices, and then the preventable impositions that they place upon the rest of society. But, to the fat guy in the picture's credit, he has moved and thereby saved his seatmate the indignity of a plane ride while pressed up against a wall of flesh. Fat ass probably moved for his own comfort but maybe, just maybe, he was also thinking of the other guy, and for that he get's a golf clap from me.

I work with a guy (actually that photo looks quite a bit like a former coworker from that angle) who while not at this level is far too large for his age. He gets really anxious, even to the point of conflict, over trying to get upgraded to first class all the time because presumably coach size seating just isn't as comfortable. I agree that first class is the way to go but my rear and all the rest fits jsut fine in a coach seat when needed. If I ever spilled over I would have passed the point of embarassment and certainly wouldn't make my problems or lack of addressing them anyone elses. No pity.

BTW....Why does a xxl shirt cost the same as my medium?

I was taking the train some place and had been enjoying an empty aisle seat next to me as I sat by the window. At one stop I got out for a leg stretch and some fresh air when this fucking monster starts lumbering in my direction. I thought, "Aw, fuck, this guy's going to me sitting mext to me." I was right.

I tried to make it work but I actually had to turn to face to window he took up so much space, and he was still firmly pressed against me. He must have been 450 pounds. It sucked. I finally decided to stand for the rest of the trip but I was told I couldn't do that. I took an empty handicapped seat, and when I started getting grief for that, I wanted a refund because they sold my seat to the fat guy. They let me sit in the handicapped seat.

If you're fat, be fat, but buy a second seat!

He'd fit right in with some of the People Mover Transit Police.

I never got fat cops. Isn't there a physical fitness component? Shouldn't he be able to chase after a criminal? Lift a certain amount of pounds? Not be a hazard at the scenen of an accident but actually be of use?

How the hell does he keep his patrol job?

Get that big and if they can't fire you or put you on a desk there ought to be a mandatory policy that you're restricted to walking (jogging?) a beat until you drop back down to the more sane BMI. Assuming he's a mere 300 lbs, a nice 10-mile patrol beat walked at 2.5 mph burns 1600 calories. If he does his part, instead of walking it with a Double Whopper in his face, he might get fit.

Many years ago I was driving down Hill St. in AA past the sororities. I saw a mildy overweight girl jogging away from me with her sweatshirt hood pulled up. As I passed I looked at her and she was EATING A TWINKIE! Honey, you're doing it wrong.
