    I applaud him for having two seats. However, the airline's behavior, let alone the staff not knowing the policy, is a bit ridiculous!

    I always smirk whenever I see someone using "stone" as a unit of measure. :)

    I wonder which airline it was, and why they have done it in the first place. Indeed, kudos to him.

    "He had already faced embarrassment on his flight out when he was allocated an aisle seat and a window seat, with another passenger in the middle."

    Stinks to be the chap in that middle seat. ;)

    My suspicion is Ryanair...

    http://www.ryanair.com/en/questions/can-i-purchase-an-extra-seat-for-a-large-person

    Aer Lingus or Flybe are other possibilities.

    Way to go, airline! Nothing like experiencing public humiliation despite going the extra mile to follow airline policies to make a customer want to give you their repeat business!
