I wrote a peice a couple of years back about obese passengers,(went in front page of Province paper, Fat people should pay more) and that they should pay more for excess weight, personal, not restricting others, or luggage. There should be a set weight for everyone, it should include their weight and what they bring on.
This is not meeting safety requirements that they have to enforce and uphold. They will not get away with it, I do not think.
