Some Airlines are Now Weighing Carry-ons

Airline passengers are being warned they could face excess baggage fees at the check-in desk as handbags are being weighed. Travelers are being left confused by different carry-on luggage policies across airlines, and have been urged to closely read the individual allowances and also check baggage size. In Asia budget carriers Tiger and Jetstar weigh handbags as part of 10kg, two-item domestic carry-on limits. Passengers flying with airlines that have self check-in kiosks can go to the gate without their cabin bags being weighed, but may be pulled up by staff if they appear to be carrying too much. If a trip entails more than one airline be sure to check the luggage policies of both of them.
