Passenger Jet Needs Jenny Craig...

...or Weight Watchers.

I've been either running or listening to KCI Airport aircraft distress calls for nearly 40 years- and what I heard today at 2:38 p.m. was a FIRST...

Fire companies and the KCI fire/rescue station were sent on a "standby for an overweight aircraft" that was heading for one of KCI's north-south runways.

The "overweight" jet- containing "approximately 140" people- landed without incident or accident about 5 minutes later.

Maybe the gate people at the originating airport had better have the passengers and/or the luggage put on scales before takeoff.
