Wouldn't you need to add the length of the seatbelt to the width of the seat cushion to get the approximate maximum waist size? So 35-36" plus 17-18"?

OK as long you know. Just like I tell people as long as I know I'm talking to myself it's OK.

One of my favorite activities. Sadly it seems to be frowned upon here in Germany. Expat problems...

I'm glad someone necro'd this post!

I have yet to need an extender, but it has been way too close once or twice due to stupidly short seatbelts - in F/J no less. They all just seem 100% inconsistent, even in D1 at times which is bizarre.

I've found the new-ish seatbelts with the airbags to be the absolute worst in terms of length. Particularly the D1 belts on the intl 767s - they are probably 7-8" shorter than any others in the fleet.
