People of Kilo's.......
If I go over my allowance for luggage, I will be charged.
More luggage, more money.
You can see where I'm going with this...........
There is a serious point here though as well.
The Gov' are trying to force airlines to pay a 'green tax' per plane, the airlines want 'per person'. Either way, prices go up.
More mass carried means more fuel spent, meaning more tax.
Will fat people [sorry, people with extra mass ] have to pay the extra ? Probably not.
Should they ?
More mass = more fuel = more 'greenhouse stuff' = more tax.
Result : fat man goes on diet = saves money on sh1te food = gets healthy = lives longer = saves money on flights
Seems like one of those fabled 'win win's' to me............
ps : and yes I know i know, personal choice, blah blah blah. I'm all for personal choice, but sometimes you have to PAY for those choices.
