When I see regular sized people jammed together, having to fight for personal space...I have less issues with the price of two seats.
I have had instances of airlines thinking I'd made a mistake in reservations and issuing me only one seat (all handled with sensitivity and tact).
The funniest was when a flight was canceled and I was sent to another airline where I was, indeed, issued two seats.........each in different rows!
I never had to buy two seats even when I was 400 pounds. But again, I never flew Southwest.
