Finnair

Are they really scrapping ten year old Embraer 170s of Finnair at Kemble?

Finnair will be probably the first flag carrier in the world to start weighing its passengers. No, it's not a joke, albeit the practice will be only voluntarily.
Starting Tuesday, ticket holders for Finnair flights can volunteer to step on the scale at the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. During the months of October and November the airline will be collecting data on the weight of passengers and their carry-on luggage.

Finnair said that it wants up-to-date data on plane loads based on its own networks and typical customers.
More details here, in YLE news.

Not necessarily a flag carrier but Aurigny used to weigh it's pax when flying between Jersey and Guernsey on their Islanders and Trilanders. There is nothing new under the sun!!

And I believe Air Fiji also weigh their passengers on their island hopping routes.

Years ago KLM used to weigh passengers on some aircraft types and routes, for example on a Super Constellation from Heathrow to (eventually) Idlewild. (In the days when JFK was still a Senator.)

I am sure a lot of airlines did back in the day with certain aircraft on certain routes but it's more or less unheard of today so I guess that is why the thread was started!

EU foreign policy council officials reportedly received a note on Friday recommending that they consider booking cheaper flights between Brussels and Helsinki as an alternative to pricey direct flights with Finland’s national carrier Finnair. More in YLE News.
