Southwest Airlines’ Unique Plus-Size Passenger Policy Is Causing Controversy

via The JBK Show on Youtube

Southwest Airlines’ policy of allowing obese customers to occupy an extra seat, or even two, free of charge is being celebrated by overweight passengers, but causing controversy among others who believe it is unfair to the rest of the flying public.

The policy has been praised by some as a way to offset the extra costs incurred by needing extra room, but criticized by others who argue that the “free” tickets going to obese flyers are ultimately paid for by passengers of normal weight.

Southwest is a private company with the freedom to make its own decisions, and the free market will determine its course of action. (Trending: New Movie Obamas Helped Make Raises Eyebrows: ‘Don’t Trust White People’)

“I hope to see more airlines implement customer-of-size policies,” stated “plus-size travel expert” Jae’lynn Chaney.

“The Southwest customer size policy helps many travelers offset the disproportionate costs that we incur because of needing extra room.”

“And so it’s not just about physical accessibility. It’s also about financial accessibility.”
