U.S. Airlines May Start Weighing Passengers

Posted by Ed 38 days ago
U.S. airlines may need to start weighing passengers in order to comply with FAA rules. For safety reasons, carriers need to calculate an aircraft’s weight and balance, and it has to be within allowable limits for the plane. However the assumptions they’ve been using for passengers are outdated. Americans are getting fatter, and the federal government wants airlines to find out how much fatter their passengers have gotten, at least for smaller aircraft.

This is a good move. it is very unpleasant experience to set beside an obese passenger on a plane that you become claustrophobic and worst they have bad bad body odors. I'm not saying all of them but what I'm saying is that obesity is a disease and can be cured if you just eat when you hungry and stop eating those junk foods.
