Please Enforce Carry-on Size Rules

For the love of god would airline employees please enforce the carry-on size rules? I gets really old getting on a plane half way through boarding and having no space available because people want to bring their luggage on the flight. It also slows down the boarding process because people have to try and find a place to cram their huge bags. If it won't fit in those measuring displays that you see all over please make them gate check the bag. Eventually they will get the idea and quit bringing on all their luggage. I've seen two people take up an entire bin that should have gone to six people.

Am I alone in thinking this?

Don't get me started on this topic. It seems more and more people carry everything on. The amount of crap people have is nuts.

You are right, it takes forever to board these days because of all the junk. Strollers, massive bags, etc. When I carry an item on I use a small bag, that is made for carry on. I have a couple of old NW carry on bags from years ago. They work great and fit under the seat perfect.

Last week I was on a AA E-135 and you should have seen the size of the bags some people tried to bring on board.
How about this one? People that board last and sit in the front of the plane were told to put their carry-ons at the back of the plane, and when the plane lands they immediately stand up and try to go back to retrieve their stuff.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but don't some airlines actually encourage carry-on bags?

I'm thinking of CO in particular... don't they encourage carry-on when checking-in online and while on hold in their reservations line?

Its bad in the winter. You get these people with their pull behind suit cases that they stack another bag on as if that somehow becomes one carry-on. Then they have a briefcase, laptop bag, and a jacket. If you have a bag with wheels that you have to pull behind you I'd say check it. If its so big/heavy that you can't carry it you can't carry it on.

I totally agree.... today we just had a 15 minutes delay because our ground staff in Toulouse just didn't feel like enforcing our carry-on policy and passengers were let o/b with up to 4 bags...boarding was just so slow it was really irritating...
I guess my airline now charging for every piece of checked baggage also has something to do with it, but still some common sense should apply. I've heard that there's a new EU law that is about to come into force that will limit the size and number of carryons going through security...does anyone know if it's still planned?

I don't know but I wish the FAA could crack down on it. With security being such a concern these days it seems the more you allow people to bring on board the harder it is to screen it all.

In a way, that reminds me of flying AQ and HA here in the islands. All of us Hawaii residents, when visiting the neighbor islands, love to bring lots and lots of gifts back to our friends at home.

I'm pretty sure that the rule at our airlines is one carry on bag and one other item (someone correct me if I'm wrong) but scores of people (myself included) get away with bringing boxes and boxes of pastries, gifts, etc etc etc. Although it's a part of the culture, it really slows boarding down, especially if the flight is cattle-car packed.

Just a thought.

1 bag plus 1 personal item is fine. The current size restrictions of a 22x14x9 bag max plus a briefcase is fine. Enforce anything more than that, but I've seen gate agents pretty good about only letting people on board with just the rollaboard and the briefcase. Part of the reason I make sure I qualify for elite status each year is to make sure I can get on early and put my suitcase in the overhead right above me - makes it a lot easier in that I can throw my suitcase right up above my head, put my briefcase at my feet and relax.

I whole heartedly agree. My carry on is 1 small flight bag, small enough that I can place under the seat in front for short flights. But on long hauls, I want it above me and my seat, not stored somewhere else on the plane. If my bin above my seat is full I'll ask my seat mate which bag is his (I always sit aisle) and will take out another and place mine there. People like to rush on the flight so they can store all their oversized bags and they use the bins that aren't theirs. This really irks me. Once we were delayed several hours out of Knoxville, TN on a Sunday because a man forced an oversized bag into the bin and broke the bin's door. The plane couldn't fly until serviced. Airlines: Please enforce your rules!

I fully agree about enforcing the rules and have only one small bag myself, but if you take my bag out of a bin, you and I are going to have words. I have never seen any indication that the bin above the seat is reserved for those seats and I prefer to keep my bag just slightly ahead of my seat so I can quickly retrieve it as I'm passing by on exit. If you can show me where the bins are reserved for certain seats, so be it, otherwise keep your mitts off my stuff.

Which pull behinds are you talking about? I have a standard size one that is inline with carry-on requirements and it works just fine.

Except when I get on late and everyone else has stuffed all their crap in the bins and I can't find a place for my one piece...then the flight attendant usually makes a big deal about it and says things like "well now i have to check this! you can pick it up at baggage claim," and walks off in a huff.

It doesn't really bother me - I know FA's have demanding jobs, but don't act like I brought on some unbelievably sized piece of luggage that isn't ever going to fit in any bin on any airplane when the only reason it doesn't fit is because the rest of them are fully loaded. Argh!

So I'm usually in the #2 boarding group (I fly all UA) and get to the gate early, so I don't have to worry about it much.

The bins do have numbers on them and I would assume that if my seat is 33B, which it was, than the bin with the number 33 was for me and my neighbor first, and if we have room left over, than bags from those near by or across the aisle. But if I'm following the rules why shouldn't my undersized bag be in the bin above me? I'm not about to walk up to Business or First and try to store my bag. I'd let the FA sort it out.

Actually in the UK they are very strict about ONE carry-on item and ONE carry-on item ONLY. Which is great becasue I can waltz onto the aircaft among the last to board and still find enough space to put my roll-aboard on, which can be quite heavy with a laptop and binders, etc in it.

While a pain at times, one carry-on is enough, IMHO.

Do you guys think airlines do not know how to run their businesses?

Fact is that every bag carried by a passenger is one less bag that will be handled by a union guy, one less bag that will transit the airport bag belts, one less bag that can be lost, one less bag that can miss a connection and end up being delivered by courrier, one less bag that has to be screened by the airline, and MOST IMPORTANTLY one less bag taking space from revenue cargo.

Fact is that trying to enforce the size limit would create EVEN MORE DELAY by having people try to fit their bags in the measuring device, gate check them, etc.

Fact is that passengers are not stupid either. They are not going to risk lost bags, delayed bags, ripped bags or stand an extra 1/2 hour on landing waiting for their bags.

So face it. More bags on board is a win-win situation for all around. Give it up.

Not true. More bags on board means more gate checks. It means slower boarding. That gets expensive. You are worried about a union guy handling a few extra bags. What about 3 or 4 people having to deal with that gate checked bag?

You know what? Lets just make an example out of these people and this idea of letting everything through. From now I recommend nobody check bags. Bring everything through security. Make things so miserable for the gate agents and the ramp workers that have to deal with gate checks that they start enforcing bag size and limits at check in.

I fly FCA/SLC/JFK about 3 times a year on Skywest/Delta. I usually am going only for a 2-3 day stay and after the first two times of not having any of my checked bags reunited with me until I was back in Kalispell I started packing a larger carry-on with all the stuff I needed for the trip. It's not huge, just usually a little lager than "permitted". I think if the general public had more faith that their bags would be with them at their destination more stuff would be checked. Almost everyone I know plays the " only check what you don't need " game. I know that the statistics for lost baggage aren't really high - but it's enough to change the way people pack their luggage. With more frequencies and less turnaround time than in the glory days of air travel, airlines just don't have the time to thoroughly track the checked luggage.

The current carry-on rule in the U.S. is a FAA regulation and airlines can be fined for not enforcing this regulation. Fines can be up to $25,000 per occurrence.

AA regularly reminds agents/curb-side, but again, lots of times, passengers conceal items and we can't always catch it (packing a purse inside a briefcase (the second item), then when on board, bringing it out, etc.).

So true! Here is the problem who is going to be the luggage police? TSA, don't think so its not there job. Gate agent, there more worried about an on time departure, FA's there on the plane for our safety and not to monitor luggage. So tell me who's job it is.

Not coincidentally, my carry-on bag is exactly 22x14x9 and my tote bag just barely fits underneath the seat in front of me. If I can pack a week's worth of clothing and assorted necessaries in these two bags, anyone can.
