China Airlines and Carry-on?

Hello,

I'm planning a trip from LAX to Bangkok and am looking at flying with china airlines and I usually fly with only carry on... However when I checked the china airlines website they only allow 7kg? Any idea on how strict they are if your check-in is heavier?

Thanks

Non US carriers are usually very strict about both the size and weight of carry ons, and many do weigh them. I haven't flown China Airlines, but my experiences with Asiana, Malaysia, Jet Airways and Lufthansa have been that they do weigh carry ons.

You may get away with say 0.5kg extra, but they can be sticklers. I wouldn't risk it.
