Airlines might have you paying by the pound:

An interesting idea. Certainly it would make those pre-spring break weeks at the gym a lot more crowded, but it would also mean children would travel for a lot less and taking a baby would cost very little indeed.

I can see the point, though with my weight I'm not overjoyed. However, considering the amount of things people try to take along as hand luggage, a total of passenger+hold luggage+hand luggage would me more fair.

I guess I'll never fly again.

If I have to pay by my weight, they should have to give me a seat that also fits my height – i.e a seat with a head rest that extends past the base of my neck and with enough knee space that the wire from the seat pocket isn't digging into my knee caps.

I agree with you Gear Pilot 100%
I'm 6'3" 254 and my shoulders push people over that end up sitting next to me.
