The largest numbers of complaint letters SW receives about this issue are from the skinnies -sitting next to the gigantic whiney fat ones --who write saying that they paid for a full seat - not a 1/2 seat which was invaded by someone's fat ass.

I've seen a picture of Ms Tiggeman and I really don't see a problem. If she require two seats to accommodate her size, then she should pay for two seats. It's not the airline's responsibility to cover the cost of her size situation even if her size is not something she has control of. For all I know, she could have a medical issue that makes her a larger than a normal individual. What if a passenger was required to fly in a horizontal position as the result of a medical condition, would you expect the airline to give that person 3 to 4 seats. I think not. Its very simple, if the passenger requires two seats, they should pay for two seats.
