When sending something in the mail (USPS, Fedex, UPS, Canada Post) = we are charged based on the weight of the package; so I can see why there are people who would agree with this new policy by Samoa Air.
You pack 4 heavy (each 225 lbs) adults in a car that is making a road trip from Detroit to Chicago, I would bet that the trip in gas costs would be higher than 4 adults who weigh in on average of 170 lbs each. The extra 220 pounds is gonna cost at the pump for sure!
