An airline CEO says he meant it when he suggested people who weigh more should pay more for their tickets.
Samoa Air will charge ticket prices that range from about $1 to $4 for every two pounds - and that's total pounds, including your luggage.
Samoa Air is not quite as big as, say, American or Delta or even JetBlue. It's a smaller airline.
Their small fleet of small puddle jumpers hold between eight and 12 people.
And the airline serves just a small number of islands in the South Pacific Ocean.
But could this so-called "fat-tax" be coming to a major airline near you?
