I am on an upcoming flight from ORD-CPH, and am curious about the cabin baggage limit. From the SAS website, it states that you're only permitted a relatively small bag, weighing no more than 8k, or about 17 pounds. For connecting passengers, where exactly, at ORD, would SAS check your carryon/cabin baggage to make sure you're not over the limit? Would it be a the gate, and do they actually check? I am connecting via ORD from DAY to CPH. I plan to just carry a backpack, not a large one, just one of book bag size. I plan to fill with some gifts for friends at CPH and not yet sure how heavy my bag will end up being. It could be less than 8k/17lbs, or it might even be more. I am just concerned that if it is more, will anyone actually check? Also, I plan to buy at the ORD Duty Free shop in Terminal 5, more requested gifts from my Danish friends. So, if I have a bag from Duty Free, and my backpack, that's actually 2 bags, so is SAS going to give me an issue on this? What's the deal? Thanks!
