Should Obese People Buy Two Airline Tickets

The most recent NHANES survey1 shows that among adult men the prevalence of obesity was 31.1% in 2003—2004, and 33.3% in 2005—2006, a small but not statistically significant change. Among adult women, the prevalence of obesity in 2003—2004 was 33.2%, and in 2005—2006 was 35.3%, again a small but not significant change”. (Overweight and Obesity) Most of us are getting larger, 65% of Americans are overweight, but airplane seating has just gotten more oppressive. It does not compute. Even non-overweight people are crammed in. As increasing in obese people, there is a new controversy that airlines should or not charge two seats to obese people when flying.
Obesity is not a crime as it happens unintentionally. Moreover, obesity is a personal matter like height. Height and weight are gained by a person due to his genetic factors and food habits. “Children whose parents are obese have a much greater chance of becoming obese themselves” (Dr. Clayson)
Even if the children of obese parents try to reduce their sizes by controlling their foods, it is not necessary that they may successful always. So obesity is not a crime just like the case of rich and poor. It is a person’s destiny which decides in which family (rich or poor) he should take birth. Only the creator decides which persons need to take birth in a rich or poor family. The same way it is the creator who decides which person should be obese and which should not be.
Appling price differently based on weight is an opportunity for the airliners to make more money rather than anything else. “The airline companies would lose a customer if they allowed a fat person to only pay for one seat, but take up two. It has to be true since it makes sense. Also, airline companies have started to charge for EVERYTHING. I booked a flight and was charged a fee for selecting my own seat!!!! Then on the flight, they tried selling me $2 cheap earphones.&nbsp.
