Airline decides to charge passengers by the total weight (passenger plus luggage)....about time?  It has always seemed absurd that someone twice my weight but with  a little less luggage should pay a lower fare.

It has merit, providing that the skinny passengers get narrower seats, and the larger passengers get wider seats. And, of course, their luggage must be individually weighed and included in the equation.

I figure i've got to be relatively ickle but i still think this is a whole idea is fuss over nothing. Just a way to get away with charging people more i reckon.

EDIT: Uh oh, just read the comments, why is everyone such a victim these days? Wah wah, why do i have to pay for the fatties, waaaah, life isn't fair. Man up.

Why not start on the cripples next, taking up all the damn space, requiring extra help to get on board, they should be paying the highest fees

I'm not used to hearing this sort of drivel from grown adults, its like listening to some spoil brat complaining about how their number/size/cost of xmas presents doesn't seem enough compared to some other brats number/size/cost of xmas presents. He got more than me, waaaah, but honey yours were much more expensive, its *sob* not *sob* fair, waaaaaah.

Actually - it's not paying for the fatties - but, if like my slim wife, you have had an 18 stone blob leaning into you, and spreading over the armrest into your space for a long flight you do tend to feel they should pay more - and have a larger seat of course.

That's a separate issue in my mind.

I should say i mean the comments on the link, not here.
