The airlines are launching new energetic measures against carry-on baggage, and commit to weigh, review and label the bags before passengers can board.

Tigerair will be the first to initiate the offensive, since the airline tests a rigorous labeling system that ensures that no passenger escapes through the cracks.

The low-cost airline has already started implementing the trial version at Sydney, Brisbane and Gold Coast airports.

Under the system, all bags will be weighed and their size verified before passengers can board the plane.

Company personnel will also note the date on the label, so people can not try to circumvent the system with a card from a previous flight.

Tigerair allows its passengers 7 kg of hand luggage, but more at a price.

If the bags weigh more than the strict 7 kg limit, customers will be forced to shell out more money on the spot.

Tigerair described the system as "new and improved".

"It not only highlights our crew that the luggage has been checked before boarding, but helps educate our customers on where to store their bags when they board their flight," a spokesman told News.com.au.

Tigerair was not the only airline to introduce changes to its systems this week.

Tigerair will be the first Australian airline to introduce the changes (weight of passengers online at Tiger Airways stalls in Hong Kong)

Jetstar announced that its hand weight limit could increase from 7 kg to 10 kg, but it would come at a price.

Jetstar passengers were offered to upgrade their wight allowance by 3 kg for $ 13 in start-up fees.

"Customers told us that they would like the option of carrying more on board and that's why we are pleased to be able to offer them the option of buying three extra kilos," said Catriona Larritt of Jetstar Group.
