I was just wondering how our bigger members get on with airplane flights. Seems that long haul especially could be 'fun'. I seem to recall that 3-4 years ago when I last flew at around 200 lbs the standard seat was quite small. Now at 256 it will be even more so and I'd like to be at least 300 - but I do wonder about flying

Hi edward53 - welcome to Dims!

The challenges of flying with a large/r body has always been a frequently discussed issue here on Dims over the years in various contexts

Planes these days are not great for anyone over 5'5" & more than 150 lbs. - so with your size, you still should do just fine.

Have a safe trip!
