->> Carrying onboard that roller with gear to cram into the overhead bin?

American Airlines' new boarding policy will put you behind even more passengers:

->> The story indicates that the new group allowed to board early is those with only one carryon that fits under the seat. Don't know exactly how they will ensure it goes under the seat and not in the overhead - but taking them at their word, this one doesn't seem to have a significant impact. On the other hand, when they start letting the guys with guitars board first....

->> Maybe it will cut down on some carryon bags. I just flew back from Budapest and on my flight from Heathrow to Dallas all the overheads were full. Luckily the seat next to me was empty and my ThinkTank Airport 4-Sight slid right under a seat along with my ThinkTank UD-50 under another.

->> It's my belief that if airlines would just enforce the size limitations for carry-ons, most of the issues would go away. Some of those rollerbags are huge.

And if you're on a regional jet, the overhead bins are so small that almost nothing fits.
