Whether you’ve ever been on a family vacation or regularly travel for work, odds are you’re all too familiar with the horrors of coming at the airport.
It seems like the field of aviation has only gone downhill from there ever since the Wright brothers took their early flight. If your first airport horror story & rsquo; re a packer like me, you is ensuring your luggage is beneath the weight limitations set by the airlines. But as it happens, for at least one European airline, shortly your bag won’t be the only thing tipping the scales.
Finnair, Finland’s biggest airline, has begun asking its passengers to willingly weight themselves prior to boarding their flights.
In the last week alone, the airline has asked over 200 people to weigh themselves before flying from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport.
“We have a strong safety culture at Finnair, and are also a very data-driven organization, so we want to make sure we have the very best possible data being used in aircraft loading and performance calculations,” airline officials told CNBC.
