    By Editor on Mar 16, 2018

    BANGKOK Ė Thai Airways International has banned passengers with over 56-inch waistline and passengers with kids on their laps from Business Class seating on its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.

    The new regulation on oversized passengers was announced by THAIís Corporate Image and Social Responsibility Division this week.

    Flight Lieutenant Pratana Patanasiri, THAI Vice President, Aviation Safety, Security & Standards Department, clarified in the announcement today (March 16) that THAI has taken delivery of two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircrafts to its service fleet since September last year.

    Hmmm........I googled "average waist size of men" and this is the first response:

    "35.8 inches
    The survey reveals that the average British man estimated that they had a waist size of 35.8 inches, more than two inches smaller than English and Scottish national averages [37.9 and 38 inches respectively].Oct 7, 2011
    Men 'underestimate waist size' - Telegraph
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/8812499/Men-underestimate-waist-size.html"

    The next is an article from NPR entitled "The Average American Man Is Too Big For His Britches"

    So there we have it!

    Perhaps fortunately, I cant afford to fly business class, so my fat bum should not get me into any trouble....

    If I get seated next to a man he usually stakes a claim on what he considers his territory first thing by parking his meaty arms on the arm rests.
