...because they're certainly using it for baggage.

While we're at it can I get a motion to make the guy that smells like he just bathed in an ash tray to buy a few rows to himself?

Try sitting in a light-jet cockpit for 4 straight hours with a forward blower fan MELd with a guy that smells like he hasn't bathed since Truman ordered the bombings.

Delta's policy toward overweight people is quite simple -

They don't get to wear the red dress.

While we are at it, could we get tix prorated on weight? Put in your weight when you pay, pay the base fare, get weighed when checking in; if you're over the proscribed amount, pay more.

As an added bonus we get an accurate passenger weight instead of an approximation.

I think Ryan air is contemplating this.
