Samoa Air just became the first airline to start charging people for tickets per pound! Instead of standard tickets travelers will be charged based on the weight of their luggage... and body weight. They reason that more weight equals more fuel so they have to even out the ends somehow.
Slacker and Steve don’t have a huge problem with this new standard because it makes perfect sense and it’s not like the airport is going to be exploiting peoples’ weights. They also see the safety issue when it comes to this situation.
What do you think?
I’m with Slacker and Steve, it’s sad that it has to come to this, but it’s a fact of life nowadays and if it concerns safety I’m all for it in the end.
