JetStar carry on baggage

I was reading on social media site were a passenger had a bad experience with J* coming back from Ballina. They where weighing all pax bags on check in and this pax bag was just within the new limit. She was then asked to place her purse on the carry on bag and the two were weighed together and came half a kilo over the limit. She was charged for one kilo extra. No halvies apparently.
So while back i read that j* reduced the weight of carry on bags from 10 to 8 KG and said it was because of limited room in the overhead bins. So how does reducing weight improve the amount of room available in the bins? Seems they should stop telling porkies and just say it is a fuel saving exercise. Train looks better mode of transport more and more these days.

Modern air travel is the most constrained form of transport since slave ships!
