So I was told to ask the question in this forum...
What type of seat belt connectors are used on Pinnacle's (NW Airlink) CRJ200 aircraft (what NW lists as "CPJ" on the itinerary) ???
To end the speculation, I'm a fattie... I purchase two seats on every flight, so none of the slagging the few of us fat guys that do the right thing, please. I'm flying on Pinnacle next week and might be more soon, I'm interested in a seatbelt extender for myself in case they don't have any on a given leg.
No worries. Airlines are required to have seat belt extender on-board for every flight. Also, almost 100% of the seat belt extender you'll see on eBay are stolen..!!! People will take then off the flights and resell them on eBay

I figured that about the stolen ones.. I went ahead and ordered one from a legit source (extend-its.com)... allegedly they're lengthier and are distinct from the airline models (i.e. can't be accused of possessing stolen goods). I know they're supposed to have 'em on board, but I can't afford to miss an appointment if things just don't work out right with an ill prepared regional... besides, I'm the fat guy that prefers to be as discreet and unintrusive as possible (which is why I always purchase two seats off the bat). After all, it's not your fault I don't take care of myself properly. Too bad many of my fluffy friends see things differently, gives those of us who are otherwise honest, hard-working folks a bad rap.
