Plane seat belt extensions for big people?

After my unsuccessful attempt for the last 6 months to lose some weight before our trip,

Has anyone (big boned like me) asked or used a seat belt extension on the plane.

Are they available?

Flying Virgin.

I would assume they have to be available on every flight. I have seen a passenger on a FC flight use one.

I believe most airlines have the ability to seat big-boned, as you say, people with seat belt extensions. I have seen them being utilised on BA Flights and internal US flights. I am certain Virgin will have them too.

I seen them used on our last flight last month, almost had to ask for one myself as was a bit close, i would imagine they would need to have a few available but i would mail them just to put your mind at ease., not sure what they would do if they needed more than they had tho..

I use them all the time as i am VERY VERY VERY "big boned"

I have never had a problem. There is no need to contact them in advance - just ask as you board. Virgin do have them and they are always discreet when they hand them out.

Yeah! I've not needed them on VA flights as they seem to be that bit longer but I always have to ask for one on Ryanair and it's never been a problem.
