A vote about internal air weight limits...

I think the internal airlines should consider a new weight regulation...

A combined passenger and luggage weight limit.

Too extreme? Perhaps an extra 10 lb luggage allowance for those under 150 lbs?

Since women and men are by nature different sizes and weight then you would need two different weight limits. Nope, that is not acceptable because it would be "sexist". Here's the answer, like in horse racing, for an under weight jockey, a person -under- 150 lbs must carry on them -my- 30 lb luggage. Now were talking !!!

That doesn't seem fair, for me or the jockeys!

I've thought of that--the combined weight, not carrying 30lbs of someone else's luggage.

How about charging by per lb? $0.xx per lb. Like freight. After all, feels like I'm traveling in freight and the in flight service is the same. (no smiley)
