Now that's what I always say - I'm not fat, I'm just under tall (although at 5ft 10 I think I really need to be about 6ft 5!)
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
I had a problem with Tiger..
Luggage was ok, no problems leaving Adelaide however its a totally different case when returning from Tigers 'shed' at the side of Melbourne airport!!
I bought less back with me than I took yet they were really picky!! It took ages for everyone to check in. They weigh your hand luggage and handbag/purse combined, which other airlines have never done with me.. I ended up wearing a jacket & jumper from my bag and changing my shoes.. so really my 'total ' weight was no different and I took the jacket off & put it back in my bag once I was on the plane.. totally pointless!!
I have always believed it should be based on 'pay per space'- the ability to fit with-in your seat, if you spill over your seat then you are invading the other passengers seat, and this could be to a point where it causes physical discomfort to the passenger buy being pushed and having to sit in an unnatural position, squashed against an arm rest, wall or another passenger, could the airlines then be found liable for not providing seating as advertised? Obviously there will have to be other considerations for health reasons, but even so if you know you will not fit into a seat as advertised then really it should be up to you to decide of your requirements/needs and notify the airline of such, and be accommodated appropriately and pay accordingly. I found something interesting on Air France web site which I think is a good idea http://www.airfrance.com/AU/en/commo...uliere_pfc.htm
