Air passengers support 'fat tax', survey finds

A survey of more than 550 people has found that fewer than one in four would object to a 'fat tax' being imposed to charge heavier customers more for their seat.

More than three-quarters (76 per cent) of respondents supported the proposal, which could lead to extra comfort on a flight to Cairo, Dubai, or short-haul to continental Europe.

Barry Smith, director and co-founder of Skyscanner, says: "On one hand, it's not unreasonable for airlines to charge passengers extra if they occupy more than one seat."
