Regarding SWA policy of requiring a "large individual" to purchase a second ticket; I believe this is a great idea that is well overdue.
I have been in several situations where the person next to me was too big to occupy one seat and overflowed his/her excess girth
over to my seat. Sometimes "stealing" up to 1/3 of my seat. I do not appreciate to have a stranger body press up against mine for
a long period of time fat or other wise. As one poster mentioned most people know ahead of time if they will be able to fit into one
airline seat. But instead of purchasing the second ticket they rather make the flying experience for there neighbor unbearable.
So I applaud SWA policy of purchasing a second seat when one is needed.
