Samoa Air introduces travelling weight for customers

This is reported to be a first for the industry. Passengers will be charged according to their weight.

We seem to be going back to the earliest days of air travel. On the first London-Paris air service, the ticket price paid for 100 kg of aircraft load: passenger plus luggage.

Australians are generally getting heavier too. But I can't see any penalties being applied when flying, it's too discriminating.

I would be happy if they allowed thinner people to have extra luggage weight as a bonus though :-)
