    Not morbidly obese. Not skinny either. Worst flying experience of my life for comfort and several other reasons. My employer tried to send me again, I refused. Rebooked on Delta...happy traveler.

    Thank you for reminding me why I avoid the forum these days. Even a thread about hot 60's women has to have Trump's name dredged up. Pathetic.

    Bottom feeders like Spirit are already pushing the limit on just how small a space a human can occupy. Hard to believe people are willing to put up with that kind of discomfort just to save a buck.
