Bro_mush had a solution to that scenario. He'd buy a copy of Gay Times and would be reading it when said porker would waddle up and would be about to ask is the seat next to him taken. Then they'd see the magazine he was reading and waddle further on.I dont care about porkers as long as they keep out of my way.
However back in the early 90s I was flying around Australia a lot, and the company decided to place an embargo on Business class on flights under 4 hours (or something).
So I found myself flying Ansett economy.
I was (and still am) pretty slim and fit. I started to notice that massive porkers were always sat next to me. They would spread their disgusting fatness half across my seat.
One day I asked an Ansett girls how this happened and she told me it was done deliberately. They even separated fat guts couples, placing each of them next to a thin traveller. She said too many fat people sitting together represented an evacuation risk.
They would waddle up the isle, squash themselves next to me, then lift the folding armrest and blubber across my seat.
I'd love to see the look on his face if that backfired and he attracted a 35 stone gayer who sat next to him and spent the entire flight looking at his groin.Bro_mush had a solution to that scenario.

I asked him did it mean that it attracted the gay fliers (not cabin crew). He said yes but they're all slim and body conscious and once they'd taken the seat he'd explain that our other bro (gay_mush_bro) had lent it to him for the articles, at which point he'd put it away and get out a copy of Playboy or Guns and Ammo
