Virgin America flight ran out of cabin storage space

Jump to last reply

Son and I were on a VA flight last week. We were assigned seats in row 6 so we had to board last. By the time we boarded, we were told that there was no cabin storage space left so we would have to put our bags with the checked bags. For those who pack their clothes/toiletries in the carry-on bag, this was not really a problem. I only take my portable DVD, Kindle and magazines in my carry-on so I had to dig out my things and carry them on and then juggle them on my lap and beneath the seat.

I realize that the overhead bins are not necessarily assigned to the seat below, but I feel a sense of entitlement to the bin which is above my seat or at least nearby. Son said it's a common occurrence now that the airlines are charging for checked luggage and more people are carrying their bags on, but it hasn't happened to me before. I was a little miffed but there was obviously nothing any of us could do. Has this happened to you?
