We have some friends who are planning to join us on a trip to Europe in a couple of years. They are both overweight, the woman so much so that I'm confident she can't fit into an economy or premium economy seat. Other than losing 100 pounds, what are her options? The husband is not that heavy, but is still, ummm, portly.
If she gets an extra seat, how is that handled? Pay for another ticket? Or is there a surcharge for a second seat?
I'm hoping to help them get ready for the trip by giving them a copy of Europe Through the Back Door (Love the new edition!) and suggesting they start walking NOW.
What can I tell them about fitting into the seats? I suppose business class might be an option, if they start saving up now.
