Let us know: email@example.comAn airline has announced it will begin weighing passengers with their carry-on luggage in order to better estimate the plane's weight before take-off. But some social media users have been left 'horrified by the announcement, which they argue will lead to embarrassment for overweight passengers, describing the plan as 'cruel'. No airplane has ever crashed because of overweight passengers. In the case of the Lanzarote to Liverpool flights, passengers were offered 'up to €500 per passenger', according to a crew member, citing easyJet. In 2017, another poll by jetcost.co.uk revealed nearly 90 per cent Britons believed overweight passengers should pay more to fly.
