If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about Spud Hilton starting a new campaign to get carryon’s to meet carryon regulations – @CarryonShame
I listened to an interview (that wasn’t over edited) with him, and his heart is in the right place. He thinks that the backlash of the checked bag fees is that passengers are taking it out on each other.
The airline is making you carry your bag on, and to hell with everyone else if it means boarding takes longer and not everyone can fit their carryon on the plane, as long as I can! With attitudes like that, the TSA isn’t the only problem with flying.
Spud is hoping to bring this issue out more and shame the airlines into enforcing their own rules (which they have started to crack down on). I know we’ve all seen those passengers with obviously too big bags and too much stuff. Lets hope his campaign works!
Oh, and one great tip he has is to take your own measuring tape when you luggage shop, apparently many bag tags lie about the size of the bag it’s attached to. WHAT? The’s BS! Maybe we should crack down on that too!
