Yes, Aer Lingus does weigh carry-on bags. The airline has a strict 10 kg (22 lb) weight limit for carry-on bags. If your carry-on bag is over the weight limit, you will be charged an excess baggage fee.

Aer Lingus carry-on bag size and weight limits:

  • Handbag: 55 cm x 35 cm x 20 cm (22 inches x 14 inches x 7 inches)
  • Personal item: 25 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm (10 inches x 16 inches x 7 inches)
