With space & weight both critical to cost, should everyone be weighed with their baggage at check in?

Never thought I'd agree with Samantha Brick on anything, but in this case I think she's right.

When you send a parcel by post, you pay according to the weight: sounds reasonable to me.

in theory it makes sense

but delve deeper and (SOME) people will be going on extreme diets on the verge of eating disorders & physical illness to save a couple of quid on air fares.

i agree in principle, but delve a little deeper and it's a bad thing in my opinion.

Should someone who is 5'-2" pay the same as someone who is 6'-4" as with less leg room the airlines could fit in more seats.

Thanks for raising awareness of www.bhf.org and www.cardiomhopathy.org
.uk
I never thought an interview I did 13 years ago for free for Shine magazine and subsequently passed on to other publications would still be raising awareness. Cheers

I think all fat people should pay for two seats, who would want to sit on a plane next to a fat person.
