I can assure you that a DC-9 or MD-80 does not roll over in flight. At least it has never happened to me on any of my numerous flights on DC-9s. :) If they really did simply just roll over in flight, I'm sure it would have been deemed an unsafe and unpractical design far before thousands of them were sold. I think that any asymmetrical weight distribution that the 2-3 seating on an MD-80 might cause, is so minimal that it doesn't have really any kind of an effect.

The aircraft will not roll over in flight. The aircraft is designed to have the passenger weight spread out like that.
