Oversized carryon

Jump to last reply

Frankly I am getting a bit tired of people putting their oversized carryon luggage in the overhead sideways so no one else can get their things up there. I have seen flight attendants ignore that fact. When will airlines start enforcing their own rules. I have seen people get on with 4 carryon pieces....regular suitcase, very full backpack, large purse and a big shopping bag from a department store and no one stopped them. there is a device right at the gate that shows you how large your carryon can be - does anyone use it? Someone needs to stop them before they get to the gate. I am very conscious of only 2 items, by putting my purse inside one of my carry on pieces. What gives? are they afraid of offending someone by telling them they can't bring it on? The other day someone tried to bring on the plane a rather large suitcase (way larger than allowed) and they made her check it at the gate (free of charge of course). How did she get it through security. The gate attendant said "we will let you do it this time but don't do it again" RIGHT! OK, I feel better now.....Thank you
