A British software company wants airlines to weigh passengers to cut carbon emissions by carrying less fuel.

Airlines currently estimate how much weight they are carrying based on generic size estimations for men, women and children.

Fuel Matrix says that having the exact total weight of passengers will allow its software to calculate how much fuel is needed for the flight and optimize the flight plan.
