FAA Changes Rules for Heavier Passengers

The Federal Aviation Administration is adding up to 10 pounds to its estimate for passengers and 5 pounds to luggage.

After the crash, the FAA ordered 15 regional airlines to check passenger weights. The survey showed that the average passenger weight was higher than the estimates by 20.63 pounds, carryon bags were higher by 5.72 pounds and domestic checked bags by 3.81 pounds, the FAA's Spitaliere said.

"Our estimates are off by over twenty pounds, let's adjust them by half of that."
