This article showed up on my Facebook feed this morning, it's a warning that Air Canada is getting stricter about enforcing carry-on size.
Other than that there isn't anything earth shattering in the article. But what struck me was some of the comments on the Facebook version. There were the usual "about time" and "the airlines shouldn't charge for luggage," comments, but some of the entitlement comments made such as "I'll bring what I want and store it how I like," were surprising. That is my pet-peeve; people who spread their multiple items into an overhead and take up an entire bin. That's one thing I haven't enjoyed about flying post-pandemic, is the battle for overhead space. But, maybe I'm someone else's pet-peeve because I've become the bin police and I'll rearrange their stuff so my suitcase fits, and so be it if someone's fancy floppy-hat doesn't gets its own place of honor taking up half a bin.
I asked this question in the Forum pre-pandemic 3 years ago, but since attitudes and travelling has changed since then, I wonder if carry-on attitudes have also changed. Should we blame the airlines for not regularly enforcing the rules, or the passengers for not obeying the rules? I sense it's a battle the airlines want no part of because they feel there is no happy result.
