I get anxious at the thought of flying. Not because i'm scared of the airplane, but because i'm scared of being on airplane while fat. I have gained weight this year and i'm now over 270lbs.
The last time I flew the seat was so tight, i barely fit in it.
Anyway I need to fly long distance soon and the thought of the flight has me so anxious cause I don’t think I’ll fit in the seat. Last time I flew was about 2 years ago and I did fit in the seat but in my head I imagined the people hated me.
I tried to get premium economy seats but the flight girl was telling me it won’t be much more width space then normal economy so I’m starting to lose my mind. I can't afford business, flight prices are really skyrocketing and there's no way I could spend that much on a return flight.
I guess I am looking for advice on flying while fat. I know i'll have to ask for a seatbelt extender. Is there a non-embarrassing way of doing that? Do I need to order it before hand?
What airlines have you flown before that have extra wide seats?
Thanks for your help.
Honey, I am 300lbs and I flew for the first time this summer. I was just as nervous as you, the covid restrictions and having to wear a mask on the plane also made me anxious.
Honestly, I did struggle a bit with room, but it was nothing unbearable. I had to ask for a seatbelter extender from the hostess because I barely got my seatbelt to fit. She was very friendly and discreet, which I appreciated.
Don't worry too much ok?
