No, if you're big I'll take it, if you're fat I'll charge for it. It IS my biase! - Hockeypop

Actually paying by the pound sounds fair to me and I weigh 300 lbs. Since there is some correlation between flight and weight and cost it only seems logical to me that fares would be based on weight? The idea appeals to my sense of fairness.



I would only agree if bad packers were charged for every pound of luggage (carry-on and checked) they lug on board. I'd win on both counts.

I don't think it's fair though.
