This is the last time I will be traveling on an economy flight, imagine you paid your fair share of the ticket but you did not get your fair share of the seats.
I was in a cheap economy class flight and I was in the middle, and said man was in the isle seat next to me.
I don’t know how much he weighed but roughly 120-140kg, and compared to me 75kg his ass took up about 5% of my seat, to the point where it was uncomfortable for me to sit there.
I sucked it up throughout the flight but I think it’s unfair that I paid for my seat and a guy was taking a portion of it, making my flight even less comfortable.
To let you guys imagine what it looks like here is an illustration
Here are what netizens think:
- Disagree. If you complain before takeoff they can relocate the obese person (or remove them from the flight if they need 2 seats but failed to buy an extra).
- If the flight had a bunch of empty seats and you were just discreetly asking for a seat change, that’s fine. What is a flight attendant going to do to resolve this inconvenience, put him on a mid-flight diet and exercise program? You would be complaining about an unfixable problem to someone who isn’t responsible for it in the first place.
- Yeah I’m sorry but if you don’t want you personal space invaded on a plane you gotta pony up for a better ticket. Also complaining after the fact when nothing can be done is just a waste of everyone’s time
