Weight and Balance  



First - thank you for creating this forum - typing on a computer is much more comfortable than typing on a mobile.  My Question - many years ago I was on a commercial flight that was nearly empty - I think there were less than 10 passengers on the plane - and before takeoff a flight attendant asked for a volunteer to move to a different seat for takeoff - he said once airborne the passenger could move back to his original seat if he liked.  Considering the total weight of of the aircraft/fuel etc. does the weight of a single person make that much of a difference?  (I don't remember the specific model of plane I was on but I think it was comparable to a 737.)
