I've seen Air Asia team weighing hand luggage at KLIA2 just before you go through to immigration - not sure how frequent this is enforced but I've seen this twice now.

The team weighing the hand luggage will be very quick to pick out passengers with multiple carry-on luggage and target them for weighing hand luggage. So if you are carrying already carrying a 55cm small size luggage, you would not want to be seen with any backpack.Â

On the LCCs it seems to come and go.

JetStar Asia in SIN have floor walkers around immigration entry that will pick you up if bags look heavy and weigh them. If you get through immigration I’ve never had trouble at the gate. I always buy the 20kg and check bags in SIN now. Jetstar has recently raised the price of buying extra weight at the airport.
