Do they really weigh passengers at rural Indonesian airports?
Former Qantas chief economist, Dr Tony Webber, has stirred indignation in Australia with calls for a “fat surcharge” to be applied to overweight passengers because they increase costs through higher jet fuel consumption.
However, what caught the author’s attention was this comment:
In different parts of the world, for example in Indonesia, particularly rural Indonesia, they actually weigh the baggage and the passenger at the same time.
Can anyone vouch for this, through personal experience? If so, which airport/airline/destination?
If not, maybe you can list the smaller/remote airports you have visited, so people can be confident where it does not happen.
