Flights could cost more for overweight people
Flights are getting more expensive for those carrying extra pounds-whether it’s in your luggage or on your body.
Samoa Air, who have implemented a policy requiring passengers to pay for the combined weight of their body and their luggage, could be just the first of many airlines to charge based on body weight.
The policy, Chris Langton, head of Samoa Air, told Australia’s ABC Radio, is fairer. “Airlines don’t run on seats, they run on weight. Anyone who travels at times has felt they have been paying for half of the passenger next to them.”
Whether you agree with the policy or not, being overweight could cost you.
