I would like someone to inform me why it is that every aircraft can have a different lenght is seatbelt. I am quite a big guy, but not a heffer by any means and fit comfotably in almost any Y Class seat (barring the fokkers). I am not a nuisance to other passengers, and always keep to my space. Why is it that on certain airlines and on certain aircraft types the seatbelt is just too tight. I use one example. CO 737-800 and 757 and KL 747 M11 and 737 are no problem. But CO 767, KL F100/70, AF RJ's, IB all ACFT I can barely get to click. Surely there is a standard length for these things. I would have thought they would all be the same.
I would love an answer.

As said above, just ask for the extender. Most all of the belts I have ever worked with are the same length, but where they attach to the seat frame may be different. Off the top of my head I can only think of one company that makes the belts...AmSafe.
