  • $\begingroup$ It depends on the size of the plane. On a company-operated small bizjet, I've known situations where the pilot comes into the passenger cabin before takeoff and says "OK, some of you need to change seats, I want to see the heavy guys sitting in the front seats and the light guys at the back". $\endgroup$
