Samoa Air, the world's first airline to charge people according to their weight, is creating a new "XL class" to cater for its larger passengers.
The Samoan airline, which has the tagline "a kilo is a kilo is a kilo!", created a wider row on its aircrafts for passengers who weigh more than 130 kilogrammes (20 stone, 6.6 pounds) and added a ramp "for easier access", the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported.
