The problem is that, even if airlines here charge by the kilo, that will not be
the end of it. The pay for weigh component will not displace the luggage charge,
carryon charge, booking fee, seat selection fee, convenience charge, 9/11 fee,
fuel surcharge, airport tax, TSA enhanced security levy, and six fifty a beer
once you're on the plane. And with all that creative energy being put to
parting a customer from their money, how could one possibly comparison shop
Oh... cool. So if you pay for being overweight.... I am sure they will also
discount for being underweight, and we'll see those kids rates come back
again too.....And since we are charging fat people for being fat,
why don't we charge athletic people for their increased cost as well. This is just goofy.... lets all start charging based off of real cost.
Perhaps besides a food charge, we should have a per minute rental rate charge
for using the table and chairs. People who sit and talk after dinner also
cost business money.
I can't wait to hear all the stories of people passing out because they
refused to eat or drink the day before a flight.But the bright side
is that perhaps the US, Burma and Libera, the last three countries on Earth that
haven't converted to the metric system might so we can all weigh ourselves
at the airport and not have to convert.
