Flew JFK to Gatwick last week. They were completely strict on the carry on allowance and made me put both my carry-on and my purse on the scale together. I was .6kg over so I had to wait in another line and then explain. I was excused my .6kg because I have to bring some food on board. But I explained I was happy to chuck the food and get something past the security check. So I am not sure what the overcharges are if incurred. They were ruthless with weight measuring - beyond anything I have ever seen. BUT - another person in line said that coming to JFK from Gatwick had no such stringent checks on weight allowance and they were lenient.. Upside to getting at or under the weight was much less time spent in lines at check-in.
