Heavy passengers --This Airline charges you extra

Hi there
I always thought that Ryanair were experts in finding new mechanisms of charging passengers -- they missed this trick !!!

This one looks like it might be copied by other airlines -- sometimes when you fly you often feel that you are paying again for Half your seatmates flight when they are quite obese.

Fat fliers DO pay more on Samoan Air | News.com.au

This could be interesting.

Cheers

I already refuse to fly because of the draconian TSA and the pricing games the airlines have been playing. this would just reinforce my reasons for not flying. People can't always help how big they are.

It is worse now due to the Sequestration. The TSA has laid off people and the lines are longer. I have not flown since 1999, I used to on business. Flying into Sky Harbour at night is a beautiful sight.

Has anybody seen a small Samoan? I haven't.
By the weight is a smart move for a Samoan Air Lines.

Hi there
Travelling by Train and ship / Ferry is Ok in Europe etc -- but you can't really do this going say from Iceland to Australia -- Well you could in theory but it would take an awful long time and probably be hideously expensive too.

Sometimes whether we like it or not Plane travel is the only way to travel -- and whatever your politics / economic circumstances you can't alter the laws of physics -- assuming the plane has passed all the safety checks etc the ONLY criterion that allows a Plane to take off is if the WEIGHT of the fully loaded aircraft (Passengers, Baggage, Fuel, Crew) meets the specifications for the relevant flight -- smaller regional aircraft need to be even MORE stringent on meeting the weight calculations.

This has NOTHING whatever to do with "Human Rights" etc etc - but is simply a matter of fact -- on a SHIP it's VOLUME that matters rather than weight whereas on a Plane it's WEIGHT that is the primary factor. Actually on Ferries they DO tend to charge by volume -- a Camper / RV or Winnebago is charged more than a small car for the same trip --not because it's Heavier but simply it occupies more SPACE in the Ship.

All the airlines seem to be doing is "regularizing" the fare structure -- some passengers under this deal would pay considerably LESS than they do now while others would pay more -- it would be basically "Fiscally Neutral" as the tax accountants would say.

Imagine a 10 hr flight from Los Angeles to London sitting next to THIS guy. (Not me I might say) . !!

Hi there
I once knew a Samoan Piano Tuner (not sure how many Grand Pianos they have in W.Samoa) and he would have made the average 6 Nation Rugby Union second row scrum player look like a matchstick.

However this guy takes some beating and he's not a Samoan. (It's not me either) !!.

It's kind of like shipping a package. The bigger and heaver packages cost more to ship. If all the air line shipped was cows big cows would cost more to ship than smaller cows.
All the air line is saying to big people is if you want to put that much weight and volume on this air plain you will have to pay extra. They are not blaming anybody for being what ever size they are.

Now if they charged ugly people more money I would have to walk in the wee hours of the night to get their to the destination.
