-- means flying out of control case they charge you for -- they charge you for your bags that they charge you put gas.
Now what airline is charging for how much away that's right -- there is the first announcing that they will charge passengers per pound.
For -- that her seat.
Now to be attorneys -- whether this is legal or not and he says that in part says it -- while camera holder disagreed camera what do you mean.
It sounds like -- airline and they wanna do they can do it.
Why I do the best part of this is that people who are traveling with kids -- actually paying the last and I think that if you travel with kids you should actually paying more money because that I think out nobody -- -- help with the screening that is on the plane.
Well look you're actually paying for the real estate of your seat and for them to pick and choose.
Hula how much they're going to charge you -- -- you're not a protected class legally.
It's still unfair and it's not a good business practice.
I think I gotta tell you something speaking of being unfair why would be Samoan airlines -- the first one out the gate.
I think -- They're not you know that's not the -- population out there you know what I mean.
Well that's true but you know what -- simply -- in the airline industry.
Wait isn't money and -- the heavier the plane the more fuel it takes from the more cost the airline and all this policy is doing is taking that into consideration NN.
I think it's the way to charge passengers because you're only being charged what it cost to transport yourself.
So and you know if you do it any other way you're having you know like tennis that smaller people children smaller size individual.
Subsidizing the cost of airfare for bigger.
All well what about the notion then because -- -- -- I was one of those small planes that couldn't fit that -- -- all the -- ball.
In I -- they're gonna charge -- -- -- -- you gotta give me a bigger seat a bigger toilet and a bigger soft drink or whatever it is that that keeps us fat.
I mean come on now I mean what are we brought a -- on this thing.
The CC Charles you're actually saying that that.
-- large person.
Is a fat person that's of the Samoan airline is saying let's not necessarily -- I mean you're -- big guy but you.
I'm in that suit Charles you are trend of all -- out and your chiseled good or not about -- and it's it's -- a hard -- yeah.
Good thing divided and why should you have to literally did not obese but no relatively -- -- -- -- An extra -- should I be served this have been you know.
They didn't take let me give me a bigger -- about how to pay the same amount and I'm still spilling out over this this safety belt what's that dead that I am being mistreated.
-- you shouldn't be rewarded you know for paying what it cost to transport you you don't get you know a bonus -- kudos because.
Look this way -- you know should we have smaller people subsidizing the cost for you or others to fly and it's not discriminatory it's not targeting obese people because.
-- have an individual guy let's say he's 64 muscular the kind of guy we see working out over here at Venice Beach.
And he's going to be paying more why because it simply costs more to transport him and business have to taken so I don't know I.
Anyone that I think I read before the segment that 93% of the American -- population were overweight.
This is this -- to -- discriminatory.
I hate it this feels like you know -- it.
It idealists and of course the weight matters but if so what can fit one of those seats I don't know that that theme of the day the wind it's going to be so much different.
That the airlines would lose money.
Well number one week isn't a protected class constitutionally.
And so it's not like gender or race something like that.
However aside from that more and more detailed legal arguments if you look at what their statement it's -- airline's statement.
They specifically said it's to bring awareness to obese people it had nothing to do that -- any other issue but obesity.
Okay -- that's another one of these corporations that.
Doing something for the good of the people.
I think that's a little bit disingenuous to be honest with you that's -- PR playing golf.
But you know at the end of the day and airlines are the -- and they're entitled to do what they need to do to make a profit that that is the purpose of businesses and as long as.
But at the policies are not discriminatory again weight is not a protected class under the discrimination -- Then they -- you do that is perfectly legal for them to do that.
I -- -- they don't have a whole lot of competition and where they're flying areas are flying if they do the competition's gonna win and they're probably gonna end up losing but.
I gotta tell you have first heard about it I get a little nervous I hope that the very least at the very least.
Put a few spinners are a treadmill in the lounge maybe I can knock off a couple thousand Fargo prepay for my ticket -- Let me help me out a little bit because that's awarded every airline does this -- taken trains and buses from now on.
Not out of necessity but -- it because the only thing I could afford thanks a lot guys really appreciate it.
All right forget throwing granny.
