More places should do this

A hotel has implemented weight based pricing. Too bad more places don't do this.

How about on airlines instead of charging me for an overweight bag but letting the 350lbs guy get on you charge by combined weight.

RE: More places should do this


I'm pretty sure some European budget airlines insist passengers over a certain weight/size purchase two tickets.It's a great idea,there is nothing worse than sitting next to a blob who is overflowing it's seat.

Incidently,I think future aircraft should be designed so that you take all of your normal baggage to be stowed onboard by yourself.The savings in time and staff would be tremendous.It would probably also encourage people to travel only with the minimum of clutter.
