1. Re: Obese Travellers Get Fare Deal in Canada

Rather than focusing on obese people, it's a shame the article didn't make more of what is good news for those with disabilities - I'm sure we would all welcome this move to improve access.

Having said that, it's best not to get me started on what I think of this:

In January 2006, the Federal Court of Appeal confirmed "that a person who is obese may be (considered) disabled for purposes of air travel if unable to fit in an airline seat".
