Can you imagine being told to step on the scale at the airport?!

I'm sure it would never fly here (excuse the pun)...but a tiny Samoa airline is selling tickets by the kilogram, not the seat.

Samoa Air plans to start its first international flights with a pricing model that charges based on how much passengers and their bags weigh.

Each kilogram (2.2 pounds) costs 93 cents to $1.06, depending on the flight.

That means the average American adult man weighing 195 pounds with a 35 pound bag would pay $97 to go one-way from Apia, Samoa to Pago Pago, American Samoa.

It's bad enough being personally invaded going through airport security. Can you imagine having to step on a scale? In public?!!!
