United Airlines may start forcing obese individuals to pay for 2 seats or get bumped. Is this reasonable?

Yes this is. I had to sit next to a morbidly obese man on a 7 hour flight. He was so big that he couldn't put the arm rest down between me and him and his hug leg was taking up half of my seat. I was pushed into the aisle and was constantly being knocked by other passengers and the food and drink cart. It was a horrible flight, all because the man was too big and taking up half of my space and half of the lady on the other side of him too. We both had a terrible flight and as far as I'm concerned I only had half a seat, although I paid for a full one. I certainly took it up with the airline and on my return flight, after much complaining on my part, they gave me an aisle seat with the middle seat empty. I think all airlines should make all obese people pay for two seats, as they obviously need them, and other passengers should not have to suffer because of them, especially on long flights.
