Air New Zealand would put passengers in the balance…

This is not yet news, but the decision of the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand is already causing debate. The institution is asking national carrier Air New Zealand to weigh passengers who, from July 2, would board international flights at Auckland International Airport.

The airline specifies that it is a useful survey to collect a series of data relating to the load on board and the distribution of weight in the planes. A standard procedure, as explained by representatives of the company, already active for freight, baggage and meals.

A priori, everything would be done with the greatest respect for the privacy of travelers who will be invited to step on a digital scale at check-in without the weight being visible to the agent present at the counter.
