    Travelling from SFO to PDX today on a 1 year new Alaska A321 with only 20 people aboard. Gate agent came on to move passengers due to a weight balance issue.

    I know this happens all the time on regional jets, but I was very surprised that an aircraft of this size would still be affected by this "minimal"(?) weight.

    Can anyone provide the scientific explanation?]
