A professor in Norway has proposed that airlines start charging passengers by the weight they carry — on their bodies.
"As weight and space are far more important in aviation than other modes of transport, airlines should take this into account when pricing their tickets," he told The Daily Mail.
Mr. Bhatta told The Mail that the fare could be generated with a fixed rate for kilograms per passenger "so that a person weighing 60 kg pays half the airfare of a 120 kg person."
