Abstract

•The Federal Aviation Administration doesn’t believe airlines will resort to weighing passengers prior to flights, saying guidance it issued two years ago regarding weight and balance on planes inexplicably blew up into a global story. •An FAA spokesperson said weighing individual passengers was merely an option, not a mandate. •The FAA issued an Advisory Circular in May 2019 that stressed the importance that airline weight and balance programs accurately reflect current passenger weights
