Samoa Air has introduced a new approach that may, or may not, decrease the price of airfare. But one thing is for sure, it’s up to passengers how much they will pay.

Here is their announcement. And no, this is not an April fools joke, the policy was actually introduced the policy in January of this year. They are requiring passengers to pay only what they weigh including baggage weight.

Samoa Air, Introducing a world first: ‘Pay only for what you weigh’!

We at Samoa Air are keeping airfares fair, by charging our passengers only for what they weigh. You are the master of your Air’fair’, you decide how much (or little) your ticket will cost. No more exorbitant excess baggage fees, or being charged for baggage you may not carry. Your weight plus your baggage items, is what you pay for. Simple.

The Sky’s the Limit!

So what do you think, will this take off?

  1. Of course the fact that they are small planes, and most Samoans are “people of size”, it does make sense. A couple of us fat guys on a 787 is no big deal, but a bunch of us on a small plane is a big deal.

  2. Dan – he’s obviously not a Girl Scout Cookie addict! Fixed.

    Junior Seau. RIP. Our most famous modern US Samoan.

  3. Do they not sell tickets in advance? Sounds like an effective way to deter folks from putting on weight during vacation. On the downside, I might be less tempted to buy useless souvenirs if it’s going to cost me more at the airport.
