(Apia Park, Samoa) If you’re thinking of vacationing in the South Pacific, you’d better count your calories.

“Samoa Air” has become the world’s first carrier to charge by weight rather than seat.

They will charge around a dollar for every two pounds, so a person weighing 195 pounds carrying a 35 pound bag would pay around $97 to travel from Samoa to American Samoa.
