New Airline Policy – Pay As You Weigh

The airline is a Samoan Airline.


According to the CEO Chris Langton;

“The industry has this concept that all people throughout the world are the same size. Aeroplanes always run on weight, irrespective of seats. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the concept of the future. This is the fairest way of you travelling with your family, or yourself.”

How does it work? – You declare your weight when booking a flight, then…

  • $0.57 per kg for domestic flights
  • $1.03 per kg for international flights
  • Someone weighing 150 lbs will pay
  • A 150 kg person flying one-way internationally would be charged $154.50
  • Children under 12 is charged 75% of the adult rate

The CEO Concludes…

“When the initial shock has worn off, there’s been nothing but support. People who are up around 200 kg recognize…they’re paying (for) 200 kg, so they deserve to get 200 kg of comfort.”


I’m just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
