Weight and fuel proportion

It has been reported that Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will not ground any airhostess because of being overweight if she could prove herself to be fit in the annual medical examination. Why can't PIA reduce the airhostess's weight and correspondingly increase the baggage limit thus benefiting the passengers. On another note, reducing the weight of the airhostesses will surely help in reducing the consumption of costly fuel thus helping PIA in reducing it's operational losses. -DR IRFAN ZAFAR, Islamabad, via e-mail, May 17.
