    (CNN)Travel can be tricky for passengers of larger girth. For years, travelers have been getting wider, while airline seats have been getting smaller. Not to mention the fact that heavier fliers are too often rewarded with ridicule from their thinner cohorts.

    Airbus might have a solution: replace individual seats with rows of benches.

    Works for me.  Unless, of course, the only non-rev space available is on the bench.  :lol:
