I had a dream about an escape route in a castle. Basically, it would be a relatively obscure tunnel with a set of stairs going down, staying level for about 100 yards, and then going up again. At the top of the second set of stairs, there was a way to dam a sizable stream of water (basically a heavy metal door that was above the exit of the stream, locked in place by a horizontal metal bar). In order to prevent the opposing force from reaching our party, I pulled the bar and dropped the door, thus flooding the 100 yard passage and preventing anyone from following.

 

I wonder if such a thing existed in reality. Seems kind of difficult to pull off in reality (since you need a steady source of water and advance notice)), but I guess it could.

No tracking software on your phone or anything? D:

nope :/ I coulda sworn I had it hooked up to iCloud which would've made it possible to track via find my iPhone, but apparently I only ever set that up with an old iPod touch and not my iPhone.

 

it has a passcode on it so I'm not too concerned about them trying to get personal information or whatever if someone even has it, I've kept calling it and it goes straight to voicemail anyways. I'm just assuming it got crushed in the crowd.

The iPhone finder is great, I used it a couple years ago to find my phone at a tweaker motel in Palms Spring after it was stolen from our hotel room in the middle of the night, which is also extra weird because we were in there, but that's another story. Shitty yours wasn't turned on though, but it also doesn't work if the phone is turned off.

I brielfy skimmed through an article earlier today about a man suing Etihad Airlines for seating him next to an obese person (think it was a man) on a 14 hour flight, and as a result he now suffers from back problems which has an impact on his sleep and career. All i can say is it's about damn time someone started suing for this bullshit. Hope he gets every single penny and more. It's time airline start getting their shit together.

Claiming that you suffer from back problems as a result of sitting next to an obese person seems a bit absurd, but I won't have much sympathy for the airlines if they're forced to pay out money. And I don't know about over there but here you can end up paying substantially more for a first class seat over a regular one. It's kind of a waste of money and you shouldn't have to pay that just to get something reasonable.

That is probably a worse solution and could maybe even encourage more lawsuits which I presume would be along the lines of 'Discrimination' or 'Mistreatment' for the large person(s). You'll be surprised how many times airlines get 'sued' on this very issue. If they have a problem with it, why can't the complainer pay for two seats? 

 

On a side note, Etihad Airways have constantly ranked in the top 5 for Best Economy class. I can only imagine how abused the American airlines are getting on this issue.

Lol that's complete absurd logic. Why on earth would you ask the "complainer" to pay for two seats? He's not the one taking up more than his allotted space with his overly large body frame. If he's too fat to fit in his allotted space, he should pay for whatever extra space he's also likely to fill. And since you can't buy seats in fractions, his only option should be to pay the full price for two seats. I see no reason why an obese person should burden other innocents with his health issues. Be they hereditary or "self-inflicted".

Have you ever been seated next to an obese person for 10+ hours in economy seating? A person that takes up a good 20% of your already extreme small seat. If you are forced to contort your body to avoid making personal contact with that person, it's really no surprise he suffered a back injury. And yes, you are right. Business class is generally 3 times the price of economy. First class is anywhere from 4 - 5 times the price.

I don't see how it is absurd logic. Since I now understand you don't have an understanding how a business works, particularly airlines, how would airlines logistically manage your claim based on how an airlines receives information from its customers? With your logic, airlines would have to ask the customer's weight whilst they are making a booking and adjust the seating plan accordingly which only then they may ask the "obese" customer to pay for two seats.  How then, would that approach to managing this issue be solved with your logic? (theoretically I mean) as we both know you can't suddenly pay for two seats for both security reasons as well as the possibility of the flight being full. Also, the government would never allow this query from airlines based on Discrimination of customers. 

 

I also agree that obese people should pay for extra seating. However, I don't think it could be possible. 

 

EDIT 1: The flight for this Etihad lawsuit was full so they could not place him anywhere else. They even put him in the cabin crew seat for some of the flight so he would be less difficult.

You're misunderstanding me. I'm well aware of the legal and logistical issues that are likely to arise. Unless you buy the ticket over the counter, there really isn't much you can do. What i'm saying is they should (if by any force it was possible) be asked to pay for two tickets. There are ways to go about this, but it'll make the purchasing process just a lot more tedious than it has to be. And you'll get the overly sensitive folk crying about discrimination, mistreatment, etc. Point stands (and it's an opinion maintained by the majority), if you're too [bleep]ing fat to fit in one seat the airline should charge you for an additional seat. If the flight is fully booked, your flight should be rescheduled. There should be no reason and no excuse for you to jeopardize the safety and comfort of other passengers. Again, this is how it should work. And i understand that because of an overly sensitive public, and people getting offended by the smallest of things, this is something that is not likely to happen. I feel i should say this at least a few times just so you're aware that i know a business can't do this without legal implications.  

 

Also, i find your edited text extremely funny. "so he would be less difficult". Like, are you [bleep]ing kidding me, hahaha. The guy spent money on a seat. He's unable to utilize the full space of his seat because of the enormity of the man sitting next to him. And you're calling him difficult? I don't even know what to say to that. That...i'm done.... Lol i'm just done.

Well, philosophically I agree with you without hesitance however I believe that there is no way going about this issue without hurting the given airline. On your second point, I find it funny how to try to be condescending toward as If I am foolish to say that. What could they have done to assist him? It's mind numbing how you can't consider that he could of just left before take-off if he had a problem with it which he could of.

Do me a favor and look at the second picture in the article i posted above. That guy is a direct threat to the safety of the passengers on that flight. Not only that, but he'll have an impact on the comfort of anyone that has to pass him during any stage of the flight. Do you think it's fair of him to sit where he's sitting? Do you think it's fair to the rest of the passengers? Let's assume they have to make an emergency landing, and they're forced to get on their hands and knees to crawl to the exit (to avoid cabin smoke). Do you think the guy will even fit in the aisle on his hands and knees? Very unlikely. So in this event, you're asking everyone on that flight to "just leave before take-off if they had a problem with it"? I'm not saying many people will, because sadly not many people consider this a scenario. But in the event of an emergency, if people were to get injured because of this, i can sure as hell assure you that they'll be saying "Why did you let the fat man on the plane if you knew he would jeopardize our safety?" 

 

The same applies to the Etihad case. Although he did not jeopardize anyone's safety, he did jeopardize another passenger's comfort. If anyone should have considered getting off, he should have. Or he could have done the fair thing and bought two tickets to fully support his large frame.

 

EDIT: I do not mean to be condescending. I just get extremely upset about these things because so little people actually consider the safety implications these situations have. They're too worried about someone getting offended, that they'd risk their own safety and the safety of others.

I am confident we've already agreed that if it were possible for large people to pay for extra seating, we would implement it. As I have told you, it is logistically impossible to fix this so I am afraid we're just pulling the rope here. You should know that this sort of discrimination would never be allowed no matter how much we'd like to establish it. I think that I stand in much the same position here. 

 

EDIT: That is a fine point you've made on safety. Very thought provoking actually.
