One airline will now weigh you before you get on their planes.

Uzbekistan Airlines has said that it will weigh passengers and their carry-on luggage in an effort to determine the amount of weight their planes will be carrying, the network is reporting.

The airline said it is within its rights to weigh passengers because of international aviation rules about airplane weights.

“According to the rules of International Air Transport Association, airlines are obliged to carry out the regular procedures of preflight control passengers weighing with hand baggage to observe requirements for ensuring flight safety,” the airline said in a statement.
