They bug me about the size of my carry-on luggage, but they don't do the same when people take up more than one seat. Weher's the logic in that?
Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!
We just flew for the first time with the baby and even though she was great, the experience sucked. I've rarely traveled during Thanksgiving and I can tell you that I won't ever do it again. We knew this would be challenging, so we got to the airport with plenty of time to spare, in case the kid had a meltdown. We didn't buy her a separate seat because we figured that a.) she would spend 90% of the time on our laps and b.) who in their right mind would choose the seat with two people and a 1 year old (we flew Southwest). We got on the plane, situated the kid and our bags and no one would sit with us, so we were able to spread out a bit. On one of the flights, this annoying bitch gets on late with her husband and three kids. She proceeds to try to rearrange the entire section of the plane so they can all sit together. When she realizes that the best she can do is get two seats together, she then starts asking people who were within ten rows of her to move to the front of the plane so her family can all be in the same general area. Seriously, none of her children were little, they were all teenagers and what difference does it make if you sit 20 rows from your husband? If he's not next to you, what's the point? It's not like you can chat. So, here she comes to ask us if we paid for a ticket for the baby and before we can answer, she informs us that if we didn't we need to move over so her husband can sit. Meanwhile, he already has a seat (as do all of her kids an herself) about 4 rows ahead. Granted, we were taking advantage of the system but it amazes me that people will inconvenience everyone just so they can be a bit more comfortable. If we really needed to move, we would have. We didn't even spread out until the doors were closed and we were ready to take off. Her husband told her to sit down and quit harassing everyone and have a drink when they started serving beverages
I like your hubby!
Silly bitches, twitchy links are NOT for kids!-Mel
Kris - under 2 aren't they considered lap babies and you don't need an extra ticket? I hope you and your husband sat window and aisle to try and block the middle (at least that's what I would have done).
That woman must be a real joy to go on vacation with.
Yet another reason why USAirways sucks. I wish that airline would go bankrupt again and go out of business.
My sister-in-law's sister is a flight attendant for Southwest. We've heard some doozy stories from her about some of the experiences she 's had with passengers.

The big dude should have bought two tickets right away and took another flight if they weren't available. The article just said he was late but not when he bought the ticket. Maybe he bought it weeks earlier online or on the phone and nobody except for him could have known that he needed two seats.
Besides if I was a sales person I would feel very uncomfortable to ask a passenger to pay for two tickets because you can't know if he reacts all outraged and offended, files a complaint against you and the next day you find an article about your condescending and humiliating behavior in the newspaper.
Luckily I was never jammed on a flight because the seats are quite large but it happens a lot on the bus or the train. I will always sit there all crouched and the person next to me will take up all the space available and the more I crouch the more they spill out. It's usually men who spread their legs to let their nuts breathe.
I have to wonder just how big he is. My husband is a large man and he's never used an extender or taken up more than his seat (besides with his massive linebacker shoulders). The problem must have been apparent upon check in, then,
Dear Abby addressed something like this today, and one of the commenters submitted this observation/suggestion:
I have to say, I think I would be in favor of that. Make everyone sit in it, not just people who look like they might need two seats, and you can even do it in a screened off area for privacy. This way, it's addressed immediately and everyone is spared the inconvenience and embarrassment of a situation in which someone has to be de-planed because of their size (or someone is forced out of the seat that they paid for to accommodate another passenger who takes up two seats).I believe airlines should head these problems off at the gate. They have a box to check the size of carry-on luggage; they should also have a passenger seat to check the size of people. If someone doesn't fit, then that person must buy an additional ticket for a second seat.
