United to enforce carry-on size limits

Jump to last reply

This is a huge topic of discussion on one airline travel site right now. United has sent out an email reminding passengers of the carry-on rules. Many frequent travellers are not happy with this turn of events, but others are happy to see something finally (maybe?) being enforced rather than overlooked, as bag after bag (of all sizes) gets carried onto planes these days. And many folks have more than their two allowed bags (one larger bag for the bin and one personal item for storage under the seat in front of you).

I think I'm with the camp of folks who think it is about time something is done. But then, I always check at least one large suitcase, sometimes two, and I am a 1K with United so my checked bags go for free.

I think that there are bound to be some unhappy customers in the next weeks/months on United as this new clamp-down gets up and running. It could be interesting.
