First there was the âwee feeâ, then the charge for the privilege of checking-in, now it seems budget airline Ryanair has finally tipped the scales by announcing it is considering a fat tax. Yes, thatâs right, a fat tax. The budget airline (and more largely â pardon the pun â its boss Michael OâLeary) has never really concerned itself with political correctness when it comes to brash promotions, and it would seem this latest headline-grabbing idea is no different. http://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/ryanair-may-charge-a-lsquofat-taxrsquo-for-its-overweight-passengers-1672979.html I think that if this is introduced, it will catch on with other airlines. Used to bug me on public transport when someone had taken up two seats, surely two seats = 2 x fares ?
