Seeing that on the news strengthened my resolve to only carry on. Sure, I probably wouldn't have two bags anyway, but still, probably just easier with one small bag you can take with you. Hope I can manage it!


The people trying to beat the system are so annoying, no matter what it is.

We often check golf clubs and I sometimes check skis.
What's it to be, sports equipment or clothes? Golfing in the buff, maybe.
Skiing in the buff, brrrr.

I just heard that US Air is starting a new literacy program and will be giving out books. I'm all for literacy but curious about starting this during a time of supposed cost-cutting.

USAir plans to charge customers for checking a 2nd bag. Express your outrage right now by emailing customer service:

Airline fees for checked bags are contributing to overhead-bin congestion

On a recent US Airways flight, Corinne Marasco was forced to check her small wheelie bag at the gate because there was no room left in the overhead bins. It didn't matter that the gate agents kept reminding passengers that they were limited to one item of carry-on luggage, plus one personal item; the overhead bins were stuffed with shopping bags, knapsacks and pieces of luggage that clearly didn't pass the size test.

"I saw a woman with a roll-on suitcase, a medium-size tote bag and a pocketbook board the plane, and no one asked her to check the suitcase," said Marasco of her flight from New Orleans to Washington, D.C. The experience, the Virginia science teacher added, was so infuriating, "I was sorely tempted to start emptying out the bin over my seat so I could fit my suitcase in."
