A Princeton University professor is tossing out the idea for airlines to charge for tickets based on how much a passenger weighs.
Passengers already pay extra for oversized bags, so Professor Peter Singer says it's only fair to charge more for overweight people.
He believes flying is not a human right, and that a "fat surcharge" would help airlines struggling with their bottom lines and increased fuel costs.
Some airlines already require obese passengers to buy more than one seat.
But do you think a fat surcharge would go over the top?
