Finnair has just begun a new program where it weighs passengers before takeoff to help the Finnish airline collect more accurate data about the weight load on its flights. Finnair said the data of passengers weight can impact the overall weight of the aircraft which can help with the fuel levels, speed, and balance of the aircraft. The baggage of the passengers is also being taken into consideration and passengers must carry it onto the scales with them. So far, more passengers have volunteered than was expected. Finnair is keen to point out that there were many people who actually wanted to take part in this and that no one is forced on the scales.
