BBC: Australia Airline 'Fat Tax' Urged

Australian airlines should impose charges on their overweight clients, as they do for excess baggage, because heavier loads increase fuel costs. I fly Sydney to Perth - five hours - and being totally disadvantaged by some huge person next to me literally flopping over into my seat. Why should I pay the same as them?"

totally agree with you !
as a matter of fact - if they take up two seats they should pay double !
or they should make enough room between the seats so a fat guy wouldn't bother anyone else - after all it isn't a cattle car (although some airlines resemble them)
