Obesity v Height

Anti-discrimination legislation is important but I've had to squeeze my skinny 6'3" ass into economy seating plenty of times (not that I fly that often) and I've always got to deal with seized up buttocks and knees.  I pity fat people who have to go through the humiliation of negotiating an extra seat but one must remember that in this world of cheap protein weight is not the only thing that's increased in this day and age.  The average height of people has increased signficantly ( and airlines are still building seats for short people.  Let's start catering for tall people before we bend over backwards for people who just don't know when to put the fork down.
