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

Response to liberal N proud (Original post)

58. I've noticed passengers bringing steamer trunks on board to avoid paying checked-luggage fees

They'd hoist them up into the overhead bins and the spaces would fill up fast. Once, when I was at the back of the boarding line, I was told there wasn't any more space and I'd have to check through my attache case. I wasn't charged a "checked-luggage" fee.

I really didn't mind that time since the flight was only a couple of hours and I really didn't need my attache case during that time. But occasionally I fly with a musical instrument and would not have had it checked through for any reason!!

It was just a matter of time since the overhead bins now are being used as cargo holds.
