How long is a piece of a string? Having flown Lufthansa over 20 times this year alone and 100s of times in total here are my experiences. If your carry on is large you risk a weighing more often. If the flight is totally full you risk a weighing more often. If you arrive late at check in you risk a weighing more often. In reality if you are on time and ...

You can swap items form carry-on luggage to checked-in luggage. You can leave the desk and check-in later with some items in your pockets, etc. The best advice, however, is to check-in ...

The safest way without a doubt is getting an EU charger. Same with laptop chargers -- just swap the IEC C7 AC cable ("figure eight") or IEC C5 ("mickey mouse) for a cable appropriate the local power socket. It doesn't get safer than that. Avoid plug converters whenever you can.
