Air passengers believe obese must get smaller baggage allowance in flights

Published on : Wednesday, January 11, 2017

airport-luggageA latest survey, conducted on air passengers, has revealed that around 18% passengers find it very annoying that the obese people get the same baggage allowance as a slender air traveller while boarding flights. The poll has also revealed that two out of five passengers have voted in favour of counting the weight of the passenger before setting the luggage allowance for them before boarding a specific flight.

 

 

The travel firm eDreams has commissioned the poll on a number of air passengers. According to the survey, almost 16 per cent men and 28 per cent women feel worried about carrying luggage, exceeding the luggage allowance set by the airline.

 

 

According to Kasia Jankowska of eDreams, many find packing to meet a weight restriction hugely stressful, which in turn causes substantial resentment between passengers.

 

 

As per information, which has been disclosed by the Health and Social Care Information Centre, over 62% adult people in England are either overweight or obese. Given to the circumstances, it is very obvious that the thinner air passengers find it hard to hear that the obese co-passenger also get the same luggage allowance as they do.
