Obese airline passengers should be charged a “tubby tax”, health experts proposed. Under the plans, they would be made to pay for each kilo they weigh above a set limit. Dr John Tickell, an expert in nutrition and weight control who heads the australia team making the proposal, said: airlines are buying fuel and if you are carrying a heavy weight on a plan, it is you who should be paying for it. Instead, the rest of the public is paying for it”.
Expanding waislines mean airlines are being forced to revise their projected passengers loads to calculate extra fuel needs. Dr Tickell’s plan is to be studied by the Australian goverment. Dr Tim Gill, head of Australia’s obesity society, said it was unfair to single out those with weight problems. Instead, airlines should install extra-large economy seats for obese passengers.
