Airline to charge by bodyweight

By on Wednesday, April 3, 2013

In a move that is sure to generate a little controversy Samoa Air is introducing a policy which will charge passengers by bodyweight.


The scheme will require passengers to type in their bodyweight as well as luggage when they check in online. Passengers will also be weighed at the boarding gate to prevent fibbing.

Chris Langton, Chief Executive of Samoa Air said: “This is the fairest way of travelling. There are no extra fees in terms of excess baggage or anything  it is just a  kilo is a kilo is a kilo.”

So how much do you weigh? I’m a paltry 10 stone. Cheap airfares for me!
