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!
