FinnAir baggage weight policy
February 6, 2013 1:03 PM   Subscribe

Does FinnAir (in your recent experience) enforce its 8kg/18lb weight limit for carry-on bags in economy class?

(By enforce, I mean actually weigh.)

My one bag is a modest, new-looking backpack (not pushing any of their size limits), if that matters in their perception. (It is a backpack but I don't look like a 'backpacker').

I'll be flying JFK-HEL-VIE and back.

Whenever this subject comes up on flyertalk, the answer is that as long as your bag is the right size, they will never weigh it.

For absolute maximum safety, check-in online and eliminate the only place that they are likely to double check.

Not in my experience. I fly to Helsinki at least 5 times a year and I've never had hand baggage weighed.

The only other thing that might make them weigh your bag is if you yourself are unable to lift it into the overhead compartment.

I flew Finnair about six months ago. They did not weigh my hand luggage. It was a small backpack.

Thanks all! Indeed, there was no weighing (and with online check-in, no point where there would've been any means to weigh), either JFK-HEL or HEL-VIE.
