Has there been any incident where a a group of overweight individuals (say a rugby team or a weight watchers group) has travelled on an aircraft together and they have affected the performace of the aircraft?

I don't know if it's a rumour but someone told me that at one point Iberia did weight its passengers.
But it was long time ago.

Actually, that's exactly what we do at Southwest. Assuming full flight and full bags, the max allowed weight for cargo is around 2500 lbs. If we have less passengers, we'll put more on board. Such as our flt. 2484 to PHX, it has a 2500lb max, but one time, it was booked to 48 pax so we put 4000-5000 lbs of cargo on it, and made up and exceeded the lost revenue for pax.
