I am 6'2" and about 325 and flew Southwest a few weeks ago. They are social distancing on all their flights right now which meant a seat in between everyone. I didn't require a belt extender but it was tight. No one next to me meant no issues with room. Southwest does have a policy on costumers of size that allows you to buy 2 seats and if you can use two seats without preventing another passenger having a seat, you get a refund for the second seat. With the social distancing measures right now, the purchase of a second seat may not be necessary.
