How "big" is he? I'm 6'3" and 360 lbs and fly regularly from Long Island MacArthur airport to West Palm Beach airport on Southwest and have never had a problem, in fact I fly all the time (2 weeks ago to Indy on Airtran, 3 weeks ago to San Diego on American and recently to Ireland on Delta)and even need a seatbelt extension. Again, never a problem.

To fat to fly. What weight is to fat? Fat people are the new CANCER to society. It is just sad.

Not a word is being said about the poor person sitting squished next to the obese passenger who boasts that he never gets thrown off ... extruding over the midline between the seats, elbows in my space, and often smelling of sweat. It has happened to me many times. The rule should be enforced that if not fit into a certain space (like the box in which our luggage is measured) ... that the obese person needs to purchase two seats. Recently a stewardess offered a seat in another row when she saw my plight. I was very thankful.
