Filed under: Southwest,United Airlines — Chris @ 11:39 pm

From the LA Times: “As of Wednesday, passengers who were too large to fit comfortably in a coach seat could be required to buy a second ticket or upgrade to business class, where seats are larger, if United’s flight attendants can’t find two open seats for them…. Southwest Airlines requires passengers who can’t comfortably lower their armrests to purchase tickets for two adjacent seats. Southwest will refund the cost of the second seat if a flight isn’t sold out.”

  1. I saw a TV show a couple of years ago demonstrating how Southwest actually enforces the “Passenger of Size” rule. They have a seat somewhere in the terminal, and they ask the largest passengers to see if they fit. Boy, wouldn’t that be a fun day for the gate agent? “Um, sir, we have a rule…” I wonder what UA will do?

    Also, please consider turning off “caps lock” when writing your headlines. Your content is great and it speaks for itself, no shouting required. Keep up the good work.
