SAMOA Airlines has started to charge passengers by the kilo, rather than per seat.

Possibly related: Plane lavatories to shrink.

Considering the Sanoa Air plane pictured has the power to carry one Samoan and a midget wrestler at at time is it any wonder.

Samoa has the highest rate of obesity in the world. This may not end well.

You don't want to be telling women they're too heavy, not if you love life.

This man is my lawyer. Are you prepared to go to court? Hand them the papers, Dr. Gonzo.

Maybe they could deliver Samoans by drone?

Judging by the size of the Samoans in the NFL, I can understand this.

But I would not say so to any of said Samoans, all of whom are - I'm sure - lovely people.

On the related topic, it's about time they made the toilets smaller on planes. I often find myself waiting behind someone who can't seem to find their way out of the overly-spacious ones currently provided.

Still hungry? Why, yes, I'd like Samoa.

This has possibilities for the US. Instead of asking people to declare their weight, of create yet another airport line in front of the scales, put some unemployed carnival weight-guessers back to work.

Making the lavatory smaller makes sense. The line for the lavatory would get considerably shorter if they made the lavatory too small for the average adult to fit in.

They're so small now, men have to decide what they're going to do in there before entering, because once the door is locked, you can't turn around.

Maybe they can just do away with the toilets and add a new bag next to the barf bag. Call it a "bag de la toilette ".

Maybe they could just seat all of the obese passengers on the same row. For safety reasons, optimal weight distribution.

Air travel is going to be a thing of the past soon. Tickets by the pound and everyone can carry a knife? Right.
