Obese people have the right to two seats for the price of one on flights within Canada, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on Thursday.Full text here.
The high court declined to hear an appeal by Canadian airlines of a decision by the Canadian Transportation Agency that people who are "functionally disabled by obesity" deserve to have two seats for one fare.
1. By taking a seat without paying for it, fat people are driving down the profit margin of the airlines , causing them to cut costs, leading to shittier service (cue the shit airline food) and finally to bankruptcy.
2. The people who could not get airline seats due to fat people have to go on other flights (or use other forms of carbon fuel based travel), increasing emissions of greenhouse gases causing climate change.
