Since only US citizen are allowed in from Europe at the moment, trans-Atlantic flight will likely have very light planes, no? I'm wondering if KLM airline would be willing to be lenient with extra baggage and not ask customers to pay extra?

    I doubt that very much given the enormous losses that the airline industry is suffering. – Traveller Mar 21 at 16:35

    Extra luggage = extra fuel. This is why the airlines charge more. So if you take more luggage this means more cost for them, which they will likely continue to pass on to their customers. – jason.kaisersmith Mar 21 at 17:22

    Airlines have adjusted their programs to the demand, so it’s not obvious the few remaining flights are as empty as you’d want to think. There are plenty of US citizens and PRs trying to get home. – jcaron Mar 21 at 21:58

    @LopeyTall just asked a friend of mine who flew KLM to the US a couple of days ago, and her reply was that they were strict on both hold and carryon baggage weights. – Moo Mar 23 at 11:27

Converting a comment to an answer after positive feedback...

I have just asked a friend of mine who flew KLM to the US a couple of days ago, and her reply was that they were strict on both hold and carryon baggage weights, so it does not look like KLM are relaxing restrictions at this time.
