    Thanks for the replies.

    Another question - do you think weighing the full suitcase on the bathroom scales will be accurate enough?

    Size will drive you batty if you let it. I bought a carry on wheeled case specifically because it was advertized as small enough to carry into the body of the plane and fit in the overhead or under the seat.

    Well no it doesn't. Not on all planes. I've had to have it valet checked more times than not, so I simply check it through now. Defeated the whole purpose of having my luggage with me so I wouldn't have to wait around for checked baggage.

    Me too! I also bought one like that before one trip and they had to store it for me in a locker in the galley.

    me three

    Indeed on the upper deck of the 747s we tend to get across the Atlantic, there is often very limited space indeed in the smaller than normal overheads. So on there unless your carry on is really small you'll have to get it stowed in a locker somewhere.

    I have recently bought a set of scales to get an accurate weight...just in case. [Please excuse the pun! ] They are hand held and have a hook at one end to attach to your luggage.
    Before that I did as you suggest using the bathroom scales. To get a more accurate reading though I weighed myself first, and then again with me holding my case. Subtracting the two weights gives a more accurate reading than just plonking your case on the scales, especially if your scales have designated footprint areas like ours.

    I got them from some gadget shop at Orlando airport last time we were there and then noticed Virgin were selling some similar ones onboard the plane
