Southwest Airlines will offer an entire row to plus-size fliers, according to the company’s Customer of Size policy.
The policy allows plus-size passengers to purchase one seat and get the adjacent seat for free but the airlines says that they would be flexible for extra plus size people if they need the adjacent two seats, meaning the entire row. They are the only airline to have a policy like this.
This is being criticized and praised, depending on who you ask. Passengers who are tall, have medical equipment that needs more room or are traveling with infants don’t get an extra seat for free. Why just this one group? I’m guess you know why.
