Gate Check Bags at Lax

We are changing planes and airlines at LAX. We can carry the bags on AA buy they wont meet the weight requirements to carry on CX PE. Really don't want to have to go out of security to check the bags and go back through at LAX international terminal. Can we gate check the bags?

IME CX has never weighed carry on bags at the gate at any station, including LAX. On the <3 times they asked to weigh mine, it was at the check-in counter. So if you show up to the gate and your carry ons don't look egregiously overweight or oversized, then you should be fine to bring them on board.

In the unlikely case that they take them from you they tag them at the gate and give you the receipt right there - at least what I have seen in the past.
