I really don't get the problem with weight limits. Instead of being happy that they sometimes let you pass with too much weight, people act like the airlinies are totally crazy when they actually stick to the rule. Many airlines go as far as publishing a weight limit of 20 kg with the 23 kg as planned excess, but when they are upfront and publish the actual limit of 23 kg, people seem to expect that's 23 kg + a few kg excess.
Are you guys going to Walmart with a $20 bill and walk out with stuff for $23, expecting the cashiers not to be so strict?
Couldn't agree more. Maybe if more airlines followed their own rules, we'd be less surprised when we're held to the published rules.

Semi relevant but does anyone know what time the check in counter opens at JFK for the night flight? I took it 6 months ago and thought it was 5pm but canít remember. On it tonight

It was open a bit over 3 hours before the flight last time I flew.
