“Plus Size Passenger”

Don’t you just love political correctness? Air France are introducing a surcharge of 75% for fat people and giving them two seats to spread onto. In addition they get a seat belt extender so they can be clipped in safely. What a good and sensible idea.

Whoops! Did I say ‘fat’ people? Sorry p.c. brigade the Air France boss has a phrase for it ‘High Body Mass’ people or if you prefer, from the Al Jazeera reporter ‘Plus Size Passengers’. Needless to say high body mass fat people are up in arms about this. Why the hell can’t we call a spade a spade rather than a personal earth turning implement? Being fat is a life choice why the hell shouldn’t they pay for two seats rather than overspilling into the space of a reasonably proportioned fellow passenger.

    define fat these days….young children are told they are obsese when they are not…so what is fat? over a size 12/14/16 what is tall? over 6ft? regards from a person who refrains from polluting my lungs with cigarette smoke…oh commonly known as a non-smoker

  2. I can’t offer a definition of ‘fat’ but it’s generally fairly obvious, I suggest contacting Air France for assistance.

    As for smokers they have been in the financially penalised situation, that fat people now find themselves in, for years, paying huge amounts in taxation.
