Heavy Fliers Forced to Purchase Second Seat

While I find it interesting that several airlines are forcing overweight fliers to purchase two seats, that was not the most shocking part of this story. This was:

But other carriers serving Pittsburgh, including United Airlines and Delta Air Lines, have no large-seating requirements. Hooters Air, an airline featuring slim, scantily-clad “Hooters girls” as flight entertainment, has no such policy, either.

“We love large people,” said Hooters Air President Mark Peterson. Hooters, which flies from Pittsburgh to Myrtle Beach, S.C., has never charged for an extra seat, he said, and fitting a larger passenger onboard has never been an issue in two years of operating the airline.

Who the hell knew there was a Hooters Air?
