Plus-Size Travel Influencer Reveals How To Score Two Plane Seats For The Price Of One

Traveling as a plus-sized person can present its fair share of challenges. It’s particularly of concern when it comes to securing the necessary space and comfort during flights. However, a savvy content creator recently shared a game-changing tip that may save fellow travelers hours of discomfort and even some hard-earned cash.

As reported by Indy100, influencer @kirstyleannetravels has garnered widespread acclaim. The bubbling admiration online surrounds her ingenious travel tips tailored to the needs and experiences of plus-sized individuals. In one recent video, Kirsty unveils a simple strategy to secure two plane seats for the price of one.

She addresses the common struggle faced by many plus-sized travelers, noting how airlines make it “so difficult to book an extra seat.” Kirsty’s newfound tip has revolutionized her travel experience. The clever tip allows her to enjoy more space and increased comfort on nearly every flight she takes.


A few other things to bear in mind are: ✨ The sooner you board and ask, the better. FAs work on a first come first serve basis and if you’re last to board, all the free empty seats might be allocated. ✨ Don’t ask the first FA you see. Get to the ‘section’ your seat is in and ask the person who is then standing closest to you. If you’re at the back of the plane, it’s unlikely someone at the front will be able to help you. ✨ Don’t just move. It’s always better to ask so that FAs are aware you want more space. They also may tell you to wait until after takeoff to move and will save the space for you. ✨ I also ask at check-in as often, they can change your ticket to be in an empty row. A lot of the time, however, I’m told it’s a full flight even if it’s not. If you get this answer, don’t be disheartened – people don’t show up or miss their flight, leaving extra seats. #plussizetraveltoo #plussizetraveltips #travellingwhilefat #fattravel #plussize #flyingwhilefat #plussizequeen #flightghack #travelhack #fatandhappy #plussizetraveller

How To Snag A Second Seat On Your Flight

The TikTok clip shows Kirsty approaching a flight attendant and inquiring, “Do you know if there are any two seats next to each other free?” The helpful staff member assures her that she will check once everyone has boarded. By being proactive and asking the question, Kirsty successfully secures an additional empty seat at no extra cost.

“The sooner you board and ask, the better,” Kirsty advises in the caption accompanying her video. She explains that flight attendants typically allocate empty seats on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, if you are among the last to board, all the available empty seats may have already been assigned.

This travel hack has gained attention amid ongoing conversations about discriminatory airline policies targeting plus-sized passengers. Influencer Jae-lynn Chaney, a vocal advocate for protecting plus-sized customers, raised awareness earlier this year with her petition. Chaney persistently highlights the unfairness of having to pay double for the same travel experience as individuals with smaller bodies.

Chaney emphasized the mistreatment and discrimination faced by plus-sized travelers, emphasizing the need for policies that accommodate their needs. While implementing such policies may incur additional costs, Chaney argues that the benefits of creating a more inclusive and welcoming travel experience far outweigh these expenses.

As the discussion surrounding the treatment of plus-sized travelers continues, Kirsty’s tip offers a practical solution for those seeking more comfort during their journeys. By being proactive and engaging with flight attendants early on, plus-sized travelers can potentially secure the extra space they need without incurring additional charges. Ultimately, the goal is to foster a more equitable travel environment where all passengers can comfortably enjoy their flights.
