Airlines May Start Weighing People At The Gate

  • Passengers could be weighed before they’re allowed onto planes due to FAA concerns that flights could be overloaded due to the amount of obesity in America.
  • Airlines use a standard average weight estimate for passengers, but the increase in obesity is causing them to review their estimates.
  • The weigh-ins would happen at the gate and would involve at least 15 percent of daily passengers selected at random.
  • Surveys of weight by airlines could take place every three years.
