    In Canada:

    Disabled, obese allowed free extra plane seat

    This is not the sort of thing government should mandate. If an airline wants to adopt the policy to attract customers, then fine.

    Speaking to the 'fat' aspect of it, that is.

    This is absurd. If you need two seats you pay for two seats; you pay for what you use -- period. If Mr. Norman, the original person who filed the complaint, needed his aide to travel with him then the aide pays for a ticket. How is this complicated? Why should someone who can't fit into one seat get a free second seat? Give me a break. Next thing you know, parents with children under age two will demand that the airlines give them a free seat for their kids. And what about other forms of transportation? This is truly asinine.

    There are forms of obesity that are not wholly due to eating too much. From the article, "Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a hormonal disorder that causes obesity in about 50 per cent of those afflicted." Regardless of the disability, no one should get a free seat. Pay for what you use.

    i di dread the article, and even if it's a disorfer fuck them, 2 seats, 2 tickets

    There are other modes of trasnportation other then plane. Taking a flight isn't a right, it's a service. You don't need to buy that service

    Not everyone thinks it just for 'fat asses'. You call people 'fat fucking judgemental asses' then turn around and call obese people 'fat asses'. Nice.

    Regardless of the disability, a person should pay for what they use. If their disability causes them to need two seats on the airline, that's ok. Just pay for what you use.
