Flying with Uzbekistan Airways, please step on the scale first.
On its website, the airline, which has flights to destinations such as London, New York, Beijing and Dubai, writes that from now on it will weigh both passengers and hand luggage to see how much weight is coming on the plane.
Thus, passengers must pass a specific weighing station, after the check in and before boarding the plane.
What happens if a passenger weighs too much, is not clear.
It is not the first time an airline speculate in the weight of its passengers.
In 2013, Samoa Air introduced a controversial model, where passengers had to pay for the weight of their own baggage and their weight.
And in 2010, Air France demanded an almost double price from passengers that were too large to fit in one seat.
However, Uzbekistan Airways does not write if the weight will have influence on ticket prices.
It says it is for security reasons that passengers must now step on the scale.
