      Does it mean skinny ones get to pay less? Prior to purchase of tickets we have to declare our weights and then at the boarding gate we will be weighed to make sure we are telling the truth and if we have underestimated say by a significant amount, eithr we will not be allowed to board or we pay a fine?

          I don't know about weight, but nobody should be allowed to fly in the exit seats unless they are a minimum of 6' tall!

            Of course, businesses would only hire "LEAN" sales staff.

            Maybe Vegetables become affordable if it is going to cost you alot to fly - ya better keep trim.
