Finnair is asking to weigh its passengers pre-flight
Finnair is looking for 2,000 passengers to step on a scale prior to boarding in an attempt to verify the accuracy of its planes total weight.
Fortune says the company insists that the weigh-in is not to single out passengers, but to determine whether they have accurate data on passenger standard weights.
In Helsinki, 180 passengers have stepped on a scale with their luggage.
The weigh-ins are voluntary and anonymous and will go throughout the winter and summer.
This seems to be a more tame study than in 2013, when Samoa Air began adjusting its ticket prices based on passenger's weight.
A statement from Finnair says, “The initial reaction by our customers has been positive.”
