This Is Why Fat People Should Pay Double on Airlines

Nothing is worse than being stuck in economy class next to a fat guy. But something tells me you have never sat next to this behemoth, who seems to have only managed to get his right ass cheek into his assigned seat.
The photo was reportedly taken by a flight attendant on an American Airlines flight to show her managers the problem about supersized passengers who can’t fit into the seats. It’s not clear whether the plane took off with thus dude spilling out of his chair.
Some airlines have a policy that requires passengers to buy an additional seat if they can’t fit into a seat and lower the armrests. Unfortunately for the poor guy sitting next to tubby here, American Airlines does not have such a policy. Sounds like it’s about time they did.
