A few days ago I was on an AA Eagle Saab 340 from DFW-BTR (Baton Rouge,LA). When we all got on the flight the f/a made most of us move towards the back so the plane would be balanced. Also there were only about 15 pax on this fight. (july 4th).
Why would she do this? Is there really a need to balance th aircraft? I have never seen this done before.
Also one lady who was asked to move back
said she got airsick in the back so she wondered if she could switch seats with a man in the front. But then the f/a said that if she switched seats that would make the plane unbalanced. Weird
