Ryanairs proposal to charge fat people more. 10 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 4  
Reported in The Times on 22/04/2009 Ryanair propose to charge fat people more for flying with them. The proposals are as follows:-


* Charge per kg over 130kg/20 stone (male) and 100kg/15 stone (females);

* Charge per inch for every waist inch over 45 inch (male) and 40 inch (female);

* Charge for every point in excess of 40 points on the Body Mass Index (+30 points is obese);

* Charge for a second seat if passengers’ waist touches both armrests simultaneously.

The first two proposals one could question why are men being given a bigger allowance for size and weight. this could be seen as sexist. The third point in regards to BMI. What if a person is very toned and muscular, which would cause an increase in their BMI. The third point is just stupid, considering the seats are very slim indeed.

This just seems to me as another way for Ryanair to make more money and just another 'let's pick on the fatties'. On the other hand if your very slim will they allow you extra baggage to make up for the lack of weight? I doubt it.

What do you think?
