Fee for a seatbelt extender...make it happen! (With a pregnancy exception)
Also an extra seat purchase if you cannot fit or others have to be relocated due to your "extra weight".

With no offence meant to prego ladies, my friend Josh Preston, why the exception? Already there is concession for free extra passenger, especially with recently emerging idea of charging 'extra' for being over weight !

The way things are going, forget the fees for the 'plus' facilities.
With the innovative and fertile brains of the business development consultants, you will pay for travel ONLY.
Seat - extra payment, or else travel standing like in a crowded local bus in a developing nation !
A glass of water - $ 1.00 min.(no permission to carry own bottle)
Baggage claim through belt - $ 10.00 or pick up from the trolley !
And so on.
