7 in Australia

7 is what I had in mind as a general standard.

I'm sure most hand luggage cases alone probably weigh a couple of kg.

They do, the hard-shelled ones, that's why I use a gym bag, weighs 2/3 of 4/5 of fcuk ll. The Austrlian carriers are weighing hand baggage and charging stupid rates for over 7 Kg, or making you check it into checked luggage at probably a less stupid rate. Funny thing is eg Jetstar, leaving Ausdtralia, strick 7kg, going back they don't give a fcuk, and that pissses me off with people bringing on loads of obviously oversized stuff.

Tiger was the first in this part of the world to enforce limits.

I have a portable scale things I use. When I travel I wear cargo pants and put things like my Bose speaker in my pockets etc.

cunts in Manila tried to scam me once. I left Darwin with 4.2 Kg, had a weekend in Manila with the family before they moved here and bought nothing. Checkin tried to tell me in Manilla it was 10 Kg. I asked how it had doubled and then proceeded to take out my 3 shirts, 3 shorts, leaving my underwear in there and put them on. THey gave up and let me go, but they wanted cash only for the overweight. I got back to Darwin, went straight to customer service and asked them to weigh my bag, 4.2 Kg. SO I put in a complaint. Not sure if it was ever resolved or not. Twats.

They are trying to recoup money from people who rip the arse out of it. Michael O'Leary made it well known that if Ryanair customers didn't stop taking the piss with hand luggage he would take away the two free bags. They didn't and true to his word he ended the two free pieces of hand luggage. I like O'Leary, he's a no nonsense guy that gets results.

While doing a bit of searching I thought that I'd noticed BA hand baggage only long haul tickets...

Just checked again and you can see from above it appears so. Strangely every time I've gone further and chosen the return flight you don't get this option. 

Can't seem to get a hand baggage only fare when beginning the trip from BKK. 

No mention of Bangkok but this press release is about these new fares.

It's good that airlines are starting to be creative with their fares. They should have a no baggage, no food, no toilet fare.

easyJet have no weight limit on cabin baggage, as long as you can lift it yourself.  Ryanair is still two bags but they'll take your second one off you at the gate and put it in the hold if you've not paid extra.

The airports forced all the airlines to allow a bag of airport shopping on board with you, which you can use creatively to increase your allowance if you need to.  Buying an extra legroom seat can give you another bag that might work out cheaper than paying for the bag itself - you've got to keep on top of the rules though as you can get stung if you get it wrong.
