I'm going to be flying DUS - CUR next month in Economy (connecting via BA LHR) and I was a bit worried to read that you only receive 6kg of hand luggage allowance. My carry on is a small roller and comes within the 55x40x20 max allowed dimensions, but it is likely to be weighing over 12kg as I have lots of expensive camera equipment with me that I never ever check into the hold as it will either A: Get damaged or B: Get stolen.
What is the likelyhood of AB actually weighing my hand luggage at check in or at the gate? I know charter airlines are doing it a lot these days, but surely not a scheduled flight? .....
Any guidance would be appreciated.
