This is odd, to say the least.
Passengers will now have to weigh in ahead of boarding Hawaiian Airlines flights after the carrier company won the right to put its customers on the scale in court. Earlier this month, the same company said that because of the “expanding girth of the typical passenger,” Hawaiian Airlines has been forced to redistribute weight, limit the number of adults in each row, and save seats for young children instead.
From Daily Mail:
Hawaiian Airlines had begun asking passengers to step on scales when they checked in to flights to American Samoa so they could spread weight evenly across the plane.
The policy only operated on the 2,600 mile route from Honolulu to Pago Pago leading to complaints that it was discriminatory because Samoa has a higher than average rate of obesity.
Though at least six complaints have been filed since the end of September, the policy of weighing passengers was passed because airline officials claimed distributing the weight better could avoid crash landings.
