I think it is fair to ask a larger person to pay for an extra seat it they encroach into the space above the seat next to it. After all that person has paid for their seat too and should be able to use all the space they paid for. With so many people being larger now I think it would make sense to have some larger seats on each flight to better accommodate them and make the journey more comfortable for everyone, I also think that seat belts need to be longer. I am a size 16 and some of them are still on the loosest position, when I was a size 32 I always had to ask for an extender. . I don’t think it is discrimination to not want to sit next to a large person, after all, aeroplanes are cramped spaces anyway and even worse if you can’t use all of your allotted spec (that goes for you too, elbow over the arm rest people. Lol).

If I wanted more food in a restaurant I’d have to pay for it, or more petrol in my car so why shouldn’t I pay for more space on an airline. Having said that I don’t understand why they don’t just charge per kg for luggage too!
