I think it's a good idea, as long as it includes luggage weight at the same rate

That's discriminatory - Women would always be charged more due to the fact that they pack, shop, pack, shop, and pack some more.

and I gather that feather weight adults would be charged less than your average PI kid? Also discriminatory.

Unless fat people are taking up more room (over the one seat allowance) shouldn't be any change whatsoever.

At the end of the day whether in luggage or people the plane will still be carrying it's allowable weight. Commercially it doesn't make sense that you'd deny fat people the right to shop!

You'd also have to discriminate against people with other disabilities for example people carrying equipment for health reasons.
