Airlines To Weigh Passengers?


Posted June 3, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Airlines may start weighing passengers like freight to determine ticket costs. The culprit, as you've probably guessed, high fuel prices. The price of jet fuel has tripled since 2000, so airline executives are starting to get creative in order to save their flagging industry. While passenger weigh-ins are unlikely in the near future, it could happen.

Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd., managing director Tony Tyler said, "We operate in a very competitive market and can't afford to let the competition get a march on us."

We asked attractive frequent flyer Frank Meyer about the idea, and he replied, "Bring it on! I look good."
