Waga pasażera a taryfy lotnicze
Języki publikacji
Despite worldwide growth in passenger traffic airlines are in trouble because of increasing cost. It can partly be ascribed to carrying heavier passengers who add to fuel cost. Obesity is becoming a worldwide problem and overweight passengers are being subsidized by others paying the same air fare, which seems to be unfair. The purpose of the research was to establish if passengers are of the opinion that determining airfares based on the combined weight of a passenger and his/her luggage is fair. This may contribute to procedural and distributive justice for pricing decisions of airline tickets. A survey was conducted amongst 328 persons who have purchased an air ticket during the preceding twelve months. More small passengers were of the opinion that obese passengers should not be given free extra space, than other groups.(fragment of text)
Pomimo wzrostu liczby pasażerów linie lotnicze mają kłopoty ze względu na coraz większe koszty. Jedną z przyczyn jest otyłość pasażerów. Otyłość jest problemem światowym,a w czasie lotu pasażerowie szczupli de facto subsydiują pasażerów otyłych. W artykule przedstawiono wyniki badań,których celem było określenie stosunku pasażerów do hipotetycznych taryf opartych na wadze pasażera i jego bagażu. Badania przeprowadzono na grupie 328 pasażerów.(fragment tekstu)
