The policy requires that passengers that do not fit safely and comfortably in one seat, so must pay for an extra seat in order to travel “, cited the airline, according to the newspaper Los Angeles Times.” However, if the flight has empty seats, the cost of the extra ticket will be refunded. But the general feeling is that the airlines are going too far punishing larger passengers, treating people with simple overweight as if they were morbidly obese. According to Peggy Howell, Director of public relations for the NAAFA, the same passengers who have fulfilled such requirements imposed by the Southwest company, they have been after malicious and publicly forced to leave the plane, once onboard. Others have been called aloud, in a rude manner, and obliged to purchase a second ticket for the return flight, after having traveled on that same plane without prior obligation to purchase a second seat. And what happens to the rate for Altos? There is also another issue that could be discussed: discriminate against airlines higher people? In an effort to incorporate more seats on airplanes and therefore be able to sell more tickets per flight, the airlines have reduced the distance between rows of seats to 75 cms or less. This means that travellers with longer legs have knees painfully stuck in the seat in front. Then, if there are no lucky enough to get a seat in a row with more space, you won’t no choice but to pay for a seat in Bussines Class or in first class, where the legroom is not problem. If require two seats for the heavier is considered discrimination, what will happen with the highest passenger? Howell said: high, low, thin or fat, widths of shoulders, with wide hips or spindleshanks flies people of all sizes and it would be difficult to expect that all seats provide a comfortable and pleasant travel experience.
The responsibility of serving clients of all sizes is the cost of doing business in today’s modern world, and this cost should not be detrimental to any group of people. It seems that airlines are only concerned menuditos customers, something not very representative of the U.S. population. The debate debate of whether or not the rate to obese is just continuEl, continue dividing opinions. If you belong to an airline or you’re a simple passenger, if you are overweight or you’re thin Constitution, sooner or later you may affect one way or another. This additional charge could assume an important supplement in short flights, not only on long trips, such as to Paris flights or flights to London.
For now, the position of the NAAFA is clear: overweight passengers should make itself heard, and they should weigh the idea of spending money on companies that discriminate against them. Howell added: they want to contribute to this ongoing discrimination or prefer a change to occur? In this world today focused on earnings, attacking corporations purse is the most effective way to get his attention!
