Its nice to see some courts still follow common sense and not allow frivolous cases to proceed.When you take up 2 seats,you should pay for 2 seats.
When you choose to live in such a way that obesity results,you reap what you sow or in this case what you eat.
Years ago I had an obese person next to me on a flight who needed a seat belt extension and then proceeded to ask me if he could put the armrest up.
I said no knowing that he would ooze over to my side and take up some of my seat.
America is the fattest country in the world,don't blame an overactive thyroid,its an overactive fork.

Another free loader seeking free for nothing. Maybe she can trade the government cheese for another seat instead of sitting unemployed.
