Airline to charge passengers by weight

2013-04-03 08:47

Pago Pago - A tiny Samoa airline is giving passengers a big reason to lose weight: tickets sold not by the seat, but by the kilogram.

The weight-based pricing is not new to the airline, which launched in June. It has been using the pricing model since November, but in January the U.S. Department of Transportation approved its international route between American Samoa and Samoa.

Perry reported from Wellington, New Zealand.
