Just got off a plane, where I was bruised, buffetted and banged by the bags of other passengers with WAY too mcuh luggage andvery little consideration. I am 100% with fnarf999 and cannot wait for North American carriers to invoke this rule!

when the airlines can guarantee 100% that my luggage with jewelry, medicine and other valuables such as a camera will make it to my destination without being lost or stolen, I will be more than happy to check everything.

I am very much for security, but what bothers me about these rules is that they reactionary...the shoe bomber = take your shoes off, the liquid scare = no/barely any liquid on the plane....I just hope that no one plants a bomb in their bra or contact lenses, or in feminine products etc....

In December, we flew Seattle to London on British Airways with one carry on bag each and one personal bag each; both of which were OK going. On the return, however, we were stopped at the security check and told only one bag. I was able to stuff our personal bags inside of our roll-on bags to satisfy them (even though they were now so big, they would not have fit in the "measure container" if we would have been asked to do so. Once we got on the plane, we took out our personal bags and stowed the roll-on bags in the overhead bins.

We too will be travelling from the U.S. thru London on our way to Greece this summer, so this is all good for me to know. Our two kids will be with us. Are they each allowed one carry on as well, so that for the four of us we are allowed 4 pieces? We will be returning from Zurich. Do they also enforce one carry-on bag rule?

mish42 - One piece carryon for UK already, and throughout Europe 4/17. Your kids should be allowed one piece each as well, but if they're lap babies, then probably not.

>>and throughout Europe 4/17.<<

Do you mean April 17 or April 2017?
