You wanna fly with us? Get on the scale first

Posted: Updated:

Imagine having to step on the scale and check your weight before you board your plane?  It is happening with one airline.

Hawaiian Airlines is under fire after announcing that passengers will be given their seats based on their weight.  Customers will no longer be able to select seats on flights between Pago Pago and Honolulu before they travel.

According to Radio New Zealand, the company claims the policy will allow weight to be distributed evenly throughout the plane. 

Hawaiian Airlines has been contacted for a comment.
