Amputations Airlines

As I'm off to somewhere and when I return, I will be fractionally lighter, I thought I should be able to claim a part-refund on the ticket cost. The fuel I'm paying for is used to hoick the airplane across the sky and mass is one factor.

Also people with fewer extremities take up less space and more could be packed in

I suspect that good business would be found in countries with sharia law, or very poor factory safety standards.

Predictable slogan would be "flying with us doesn't cost an arm and leg, unless you want the discount"

       Selfishly, as someone with an above-average number of limbs*, I cannot support this idea.

       //an above-average number of limbs   

       I am too afraid to ask.   

       //This would discriminate against fatties   

       Could be done in a relative way, mass on outbound - mass on return trip = amount of part-refund of ticket price.

       Maybe you should check out the immigration policies on Bethselamin, particularly the rules on exports ...

       Egads :-(   

       You are correct. However that was to protect their environment, and it was them doing the amputations. This does not directly protect the environment and AA does not do the cutting, even the overhead luggage lockers have padded bits on the edges to avoid recursive ticket reduction spiral.

       * (Because there are some people who are missing an arm or a leg, or are missing more than one limb, the average number of limbs per person in the population is slightly below 4. Therefore I have an above-average number of limbs)

       Ah, you're trying to talk your way out of that admission.   

       You are spiderperson and I claim my 5 Albanian Lekke.   

       NB that's only on the mean, on mode and median...breaks out the steam abacus.....

       I really thought it was going to be a little more proactive.   

       They group people by transplant compatibility, chop off limbs at one end, and replace them with the limbs of someone going the other way once you land.

       Ah, the incredible lightness of being strange.

       Blummin' heck, the idea has only been on here 3 days and someone's already pinching my idea. Plagiarist linky
