Aren't there size/weight limits already? Are they not enforced? What if people with massive suitcases take up all the space and average joe can't even fit in his backpack anymore? If that happened to me I would just throw out one of those suitcases lol
yeah that's what I do if it's assigned seats and not southwest and it's the best.
You think a million other people haven't already thought of this lol. Unless the bag is clearly over the limit and won't fit, flight attendants aren't going to take your side on this.
Backpacks go underneath the seat anyway.
Even if all the carry-ons are within the stated limits (which are usually not strictly enforced anyway), planes just aren't designed with enough room for everyone to bring one.
That's cool. But again, I only use a backpack, so if I really need it, the thing can go under my seat. My wife and I went to Thailand for two weeks once and all we brought was a single backpack each. We travel light.
That was back when checked bags were free. Now everyone carries on.
No, you're absolutely right. These two drive me insane.There are a lot of things about flying that don't make much sense to me. Like how when they announce they will start boarding the plane a large contingent of people get up, gather their stuff, and rush up toward the boarding line but just stand around to the sides for several minutes watching everyone go by because they are actually in one of the last boarding groups. You're not going to get on until they call you. Why not just stay seated until it gets closer to your group? I've never seen bin space be a problem the flights I've been on so I doubt that's it but maybe they are just scared of that and want to be first whenever that last group is called.
When you land, the plane empties out front to back, so if you're sitting back in coach where I do, there's no rush, but after landing as soon as that seatbelt sign turns off at least half the people immediately stand up or as close as they can get. Some cram the aisles leaving no personal space, and others uncomfortably hunch over in front of their seats. And then they wait and wait because they aren't even letting people off yet, and when they do they aren't getting off first anyway. I'm sitting there in the aisle seat (I'm tall) and there's always someone's ass right there, and I'm wondering why they don't just wait until closer to the time they can actually leave before they get up. I could understand if it was a long flight, or a small handful of people, but the flights I'm on are usually an hour or less and it happens every time.
Now before someone jumps all over me it's not that I hate these people or I'm livid about it. It just puzzles me, that's all. I DO hate flying, though.
