Should Fat Flyers Pay More?

CBS News Online discusses United Airlines’ new policy regarding overweight passengers; United Airlines requires large passengers to purchase two seats.

Considering the American male and females average size has increased over the years, should United Airlines increase their seat size rather than require large passengers purchase multiple seats? How does Marilyn Wann call attention to size discrimination on planes? Recently director/actor Kevin Smith made headlines for clashing with Southwest Airlines over a similar issue.

While the involvement of a celebrity obviously brings more attention to the issue, do you think it will lead to changes in policy?
