I need to check in an additional piece of luggage this time ex-JFK in F; any chance of getting the additional checked bag fee waived?
I've had experience both ways with Cathay (C class, DM statu) at JFK.

1) 3 bags, but each was weighting at 75 pounds, passed.

2) 4 bags, but combined weight is *only* 200 pounds. I actually had my credit card out ready to pay a fee, but the agent promptly called her supervisor, passed.

I'm not sure about the staffing now since it's been awhile, but when BA staff was doing Cathay flights, I had nothing but great and friendly experiences.
