    Could this trigger a change in the airline's luggage policies? (Now if you were moving the whole house this way, I bet they'd charge a little more!)
    • I doubt it.

      It's $2 a kilo... if the plane will take it.

      If you bring more than they can handle, they just bump the excess until the next flight.

      For this flight, a 100 kilogram self-propelled meatbag can ride the plane for $120. 100 kilograms of dead weight costs $200. (of course, they have to carry it though...)

      So I guess you could keep dumping it and they'd keep taking it.

      Of course, once the value of a possession falls very close to $2 a kilogram, or is too large to fit into the hold, land becomes cheaper.
