Weighing

Is it really easier and, more to the point, safer to add all this tech than to just weigh the plane???

Load cells on the parking spots would not be a particularly huge cost, but safety would be enhanced.

Such a system would also overcome issues like that of the Gimli glider, where fuel quantities were mistaken due to confusion between gallons and litres.
