How can you say if your suitcase weighs more than 50 pounds?
Weigh yourself on a home scale, then with the bag on your back. The weight of the bag is calculated by subtracting the first from the second. The bag will not weigh correctly if it is larger than the scale, such as hanging over the sides, which is why you must stand on the scales when carrying it.
What if my bag is heavier than 50 pounds?
For regular bags (your first two), the overweight charge is $100 if the bag weighs between 50.1 and 70 pounds, and $200 if the bag weighs between 70.1 and 100 pounds. Bags weighing more than 100 pounds are not permitted. You will be charged extra if you are carrying more than two bags and are not a military or business/first class passenger.
