Should Airlines Charge on the Basis of Total Weight?

03 April 2013, 07:23
I noted this story, Samoa Air charges fat tax - http://www.fijitimes.com/story.aspx?id=229938/ I

When you book and airline ticket the fare is calculated on the basis of your weight plus the weight of your baggage - $x per kilogram or pound..

On arrival at the check-in counter they will validate the weight and adjust the fare accordingly.


I think it is a fair and great idea.
