Carry On Luggage Size

On Tuesday's flight some woman came on with a full sized garment bag stuffed. She also had a very large briefcase (one of those you can get at Costco--looks like a overnighter bag,but is very thick and has a Swiss type logo on it?). She stuffed it in the overhead immediately rendering 80% of the bin full.

Yesterday some man has a full size suitcase I kid you not. He stuffed it as well only finally getting it in the bin.

HP really needs to step up to the plate here and bear responsibility for monitoring this. Not to mention doing this on HP's lovely 733's where as you all know OSB's get filled up at about half way through the boarding procedure.

Perhaps I will draft a letter and send it to FF.

PS. I also sat next to some know-it-all type guy who thought he was the coolest dude around. We started talking about the US-HP merger and he started telling me he is friends with Scott Kirby and "knows" D Parker yadda yadda yadda. Mr Travel Man next to me. Being a little weary of Mr Travel Tips, I started fielding some questions on HP's routings and a/c configurations, F service, etc. Yeah, just like I thought--he knew jack. I think he liked to hear himself talk (even donning my Bose headphones didn't change the situation--he just kept on yappin!)
