Passengers may begin to weigh in before flying in the US. Under this, they can be weighed before boarding the aircraft, so that the total weight of the passengers in the aircraft can be accurately estimated. This will help the aircraft to maintain balance during the flight as well as to make the journey safe.

In fact, the rapidly increasing obesity among Americans has raised the concern of aviation officials. Federal Aviation has also expressed concern over this 2 years ago. It had also issued a circular asking airline to overcome the weight and balance problem. There is also a fear of overload of the aircraft behind it. Although airlines use the standard average weight estimate for passengers, rising obesity rates in the US have neutralized them. The rate of obesity there is around 43%, i.e. around 4 people out of 10 are obese. In such a situation, the travel rules will be reviewed.

In such a situation, now the passengers will be weighed at the airport gate and only then it will be decided whether they can travel or not.

Although not all passengers will weigh for this, it can happen with approx 15% of the passengers. It will be kept completely confidential. Should be 90 kg in summer and 95 kg in winter A survey of weights by airlines can be done every three years or 36 months. According to the old rules, the weight of an adult passenger was assumed to be 77 kg in summer and 79 kg in winter. In the new rules, it was increased to 90 and 95 kg, but there was no difference.
