In the discussion thread: $25 for Overhead Bins? [View all]

36. So do I, indirectly

I use an airline credit card that allows a free checked bag. Even if I didn't, since most of my trips involve a change in O'Hare the relatively small (compared to the price of the ticket) fee is worth it not to have to haul a bag from C40 to F12 (which I think is the longest distance while staying on one airline and which I've done more than once). As I get older and less spry I find myself having more difficulty doing some things I once took for granted. I take a small bag on board with the things I can't lose - prescription drugs, a small laptop, change of underwear - that fits under the seat. On some planes I can't even reach the overhead bins!

BTW, United (at least last year) had a very nice toiletries kit for people whose luggage got delayed. And they delivered the bag to my hotel as soon as it arrived.
