Do you weight your luggage before going to airport?

Hello Lotters, My aunt left a couple of days ago because her times up visiting the country. before that she was able to buy or get a lot of souvenirs that her sister, my other aunt requested. but before she could be ready with all of that, she had to weight her luggage to keep it in a certain pounds or kilos. That way it would keep them from paying additional fees when they are in the airport. They Always do this before leaving the country, lucky we have a weight scale that is not digital. I'm not fond of digital scales, they can be unreliable when they have low battery. I wonder if you do the same thing when ever you leave the country with some souvenirs with you.

Yes, I always did that when I took a flight, unless I was pretty sure my luggage wouldn't exceed the limit. I do not want to pay extra charge too, as it can be very costly.

Hello @kaka135 that is what they want to avoid because my aunty was carrying two or more luggage and the rest were just plain clothes of her. it is very costly not to mention extra bribes from the darn staff.

@Letranknight2015 One of my coursemates encountered that. She exceeded a lot, so she ended up throwing away many of her stuffs in the airport as it was too costly to pay for the extra charge.

I don't weight my luggage before going to the airport as most of the time the flight will give me 20kg for the luggage. And my luggage is not that heavy anyway. Even if when I travelled to Moscow which I had to bring more coats. And I also bought several bottles of Vodka and other souvenirs, my luggage is not even close to 20kg yet

I guess they're pretty honest there, or it's just it's rare that my aunt visits so thats why he gets a lot of baggage when ever she gets to visit. @youless .

I do not have this problem at all. There was one time when I bought a lot of books in China, and I knew that I could borrow the quota from my relatives. We checked in as a group, and as a result, the average luggage was about 15 kg per person. When we went there, the average luggage was about 10kg per person.
