Man asks if he’s “a**hole” for charging obese plane passenger £115 for taking up his seat

“Well the people sitting behind me (who keep in mind didn’t volunteer to sit by him) were making under their breath comments about me being an a**hole for doing that. I just ignored them and put the cash in my wallet.

“From my perspective, I gave the guy a valid option to stay on the flight and I was compensated for literally having only 75% of my seat max (let alone the feeling of a person’s body pressed against you involuntarily). A win-win.

“He wasn’t angry at all, if anything he seemed quite relieved we could work it out privately.

“After the flight, the couple behind me glared at me but I ignored them. This leads me to beg the question, AITA (Am I The A**hole?).”

Mainstream commercial airlines operate a ‘one size fits all’ policy, meaning larger passengers have the option of buying an extra seat or upgrading to a class with a bigger seat.

On Reddit, some people still felt the man who complained had been a tad harsh, while others praised his actions.

The vast majority, though, concluded that the unnamed airline was in fact the “a**hole” in the situation.
