Have QF started weighing every carry bag? Had my bag weighed for the first time in years today boarding 566 PER-SYD. Staff said all the high tier FF had been written too. I’m P and have not seen anything.

I am also P and have flown business this week Bris/Syd return and Bris/melb return.. No checking and lots of people carrying on bags(multiple) which would have been well over any allowance figure.

Flown BNE to MEl last week, no weighing and usual unproductive priority boarding. Luckily still plenty of overhead bin space, no stuffing hand luggage maniacs.

New CASA rules is on fuel management, which now have to be declared as full emergency Mayday. So, QF may be watching fuel uptake vs weight on medium haul??? Obviously, i’m guessing.

Checking for every flight would be too costly so random testing is the way they are going.

That is why I get boarding pass in the lounge...no scales. I have had hand luggage weighed on and odd over the years. EK also does it from time to time.

I usually fly overweight (big camera, so is usually waived) and I've been weighed before, but it isn't universal. In maybe 100 flights in the last year, my carry on has been weighed 3 times.
