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.
