Okay, we have all seen the shows on TV with the testing of new aircraft. What is the certified weight limit of the seats and restraints? If a person needs to occupy two seats, and only use one seat belt, aren't they exceeding the maximum design strength of the belt?
I know the use average weights and dimensions when developing the seats, is that taken into account. Could there ever be, "Sorry, you exceeded the limitations of this aircraft" from a gate agent?
