am going to America for first time and I am panicking about the length of the seatbelt as am a fat git. I keep reading these lists where all the other airline belts are 40 odd inches and UA's are 31 inches !!!!! I could stop eating now and still wouldn�t fit in 31 inches.
I went on Jet2 last year and was fine�and yes, I know there is a way I could stop all this but I just wondered if anyone had flown UA and noticed
ring them up and ask them on their customer services line. if they think there might be a problem they have seat belt extensions. by telling them in advance it means there is one there for you. saves any embarrassment after you have boarded.
Sorry yes they do seem small to me! I flew United last September to New York, I'm a size 24 and I really struggled to get it clipped unfortunately. Once on I put it under my tummy for comfort and kept it on! I then flew to London with BA in December dreading it - and it was absolutely fine!
I'm a fat git. (I'm NOT saying you are btw) & there's no way I can use any airlines seatbelt without an extension. To avoid the embarrassment of asking for one I bought one on eBay. About a tenner. Well worth it IMO.
I have a feeling that you are not allowed to use your own seatbelt extenders anymore... has anyone been on a jet2 and United? I realise this venn diagram might be quite small though - can fit Jet2 a-ok
