|Yes. Passengers who overflow into a second seat should be charged for the space they occupy.||2437 (37.9%)|
|Maybe. Is the flight full? If not, just place them near an open seat and be done with it.||513 (8.0%)|
|Absolutely not. How insulting is it to charge one person for two tickets?!||888 (13.8%)|
|Let's be honest: I don't want obese passengers on my flight. If they spill out into the aisle, or fall during an evacuation, my safety is at risk.||471 (7.3%)|
|How about if airlines offer "special seating sections" for larger passengers (and price them accordingly)?||2124 (33.0%)|
