Flying on planes these days is becoming more and more costly. While the airlines seem to be cutting costs everywhere they can, they seem to be charging us the customers more. Meals are rarely included, and for the most part we’re charged for suitcases that we check in.
Despite all this, I don’t think we should lose sight of how amazing it is that we can actually get in a plane, and it ummm — flies. Flies in the air. It really is a miracle of science that this is possible. (Comedian Louis C.K. has a great routine about how in many ways we’ve all become quite spoiled)

Anyway, often you’ll hear a story about an obese person who gets on a plane, and their “fatness” becomes an issue. People around them are uncomfortable, and I’ve even heard of airlines trying to charge obese people for two seats, because that’s in fact what they require.
This is why I don’t think it should be an issue of somebody wants to wear ALL of his/her clothes on a flight
(a friend suggested humans can do this). That’s right, to avoid checking in luggage, wear EVERYTHING at once. Maybe shoes would be an issue, as well as toiletries, but surely the bulk of that stuff could fit into carry-on bags.
Also, I find that on most of the flights I’ve been on, it’s quite cold inside the plane — so even if you’re wearing all of your clothes, you won’t get hot despite the many layers you’d be wearing. This is worth considering, because if someone else’s fat can overflow into your personal space, then it shouldn’t be an issue if wearing all of your clothes makes you a little bigger, too.
Hey, in this tough economy, we all need to be cutting corners and saving money wherever we can.
