Why wouldn't it. Airlines need to know the weight of the luggage to calculate, take of speed, wing settings and fuel needed. Let alone the airlines have restrictions on weights.

You are right there, but none of our party's hand luggage was weighed going out

So I was just wondering that all.

Thanks

I apologise, because i never saw the hand bit in the luggage question. Makes sense now. Thought the question was rather peculiar.

They calculate a rough gestomate of hand luggage weight per person depending on airlines, you might get it weighed. Depends how its enforced at the airport. Sometimes they look at the size and dont bother

Ours wasnt weighed at Gatwick or at Enfidha, lol, i do find it silly for them not to tho, seeing as a few peeps in front of us had bags the size of medium suitcases!!! Lol.

mine wasn't weighed, nor did I see any body else have there's weighed either, might be the luck of the draw depending on who is on duty? they don't confiscate your bottles of water or enforce the 100ml liquid rule either

Flew back last week and didn't see any hand luggage being weighed. There was a lady in front of us in the queue who could barely lift her "hand" luggage, which was a holdall on wheels that looked a lot bigger than the maximum size. No one batted an eyelid.

They definately didnt let anybody thru with water or items more than 100ml and not in clear bags at Enfidha in April.

we came through in May with our drinks on show, the small bottles of water and nobody bothered, but as others have said it depends who is on duty,

i cant see the point of weighing hand luggage on arrival when you can buy in the duty free, a couple of 1ltr bottles of drink which can weigh a kilo or so, they should clamp down on the size of it, the budget airlines do,
