Nobody is picking on Fat people. They just want the seat they paid for without others in the same space. Is that too much to ask?

You want it to be acceptable to overflow into my seat but you'd object if I asked you to hold my bag on your lap in return....

If you have to WD-40 your hips in order to fit into an airline seat, then you should ride your bike to your destination....for you and for me.

Kevin, you knew the policy, thats why you bought 2 seats on a later fly. I'm sick of someone in my seat that I paid for.

Anyone ever think that to EVACUATE and have a LARGE person in an aisle seat...can impede one's access to the aisle to get off the a/c? If you are big- then sit in window seats..notice plural...and NOT block access to the aisle. Sorry - but having to evac- and have a big one in an aisle seat is like scaling Mt. Everest - to get OFF the a/c. Beging big- does not mean speed to move the bulk.

I totally agree with you and have wondered why this point has not been made in the plethora of articles out there? Mr. Smith KNEW that he was a "Customer of Size" and originally made the right decision to buy the two seats. Granted, SWA could have handled it better - like not letting him board earlier as standby - with only one seat left. And the Captain probably should have let it go for the short flight, once he was settled in. In the end,Kevin has come out the winner, milking this for every bit of free publicity and then more.
