So it has all ready started. 2 people (a man and a woman) just showed up at my gate for my flight to Chicago O'hare with 5 bags (4 large suitcase style and a large purse). I am sure the picture does not do it justice.

It took the guy a whole "SmartCart" jam packed to get this crap down to the gate area. There is no way half of their bags qualifies as "a single carry on and a personal bag" which are the rules currently for American.

The best part is that this flight is on a Embaraer Regional Jet which does not have much space under the seat and small overhead storage bins. It will be fun to see them try to shove this crap into the overhead bins.

If this is the start before they are even charging for all checked bags (and I hate to think that they might have already checked a bags too), then this is going to be lots of fun.

Nope
No I don't work for any airline. I just fly them and seem to run in to issues like every one else. But some how I seem to have issue more then others.

Re: Nope
I just read about the delay. And CMH sucks because, as I recall, it is very small and lacks a nice bar. A cheap airport bar, but not a proper saloon. And there is no United Red carpet Club there.

Meh, CMH is not too bad of a place to get stuck at. Ya, it’s not the international terminal at DFW, but its nice, its clean, and best of all, it was not busy, so calm is good.

When I flew from Miami to San Francisco, on my way back from Argentina, someone tried to bring a bunch of stuff as carry-on and they stopped him and made him check it.

Ya, they made them gate check almost all the bags. And then the one big bag the woman "Smuggled" on-board, she had to beat it to a pulp to get it in the overhead bin. I laughed!
