“Slap in the face…”. Carry-on bag fees…really?

Really! Isn’t it amazing of all the work it takes just to carry on a bag?

On my last business trip I decided to carry on instead of checking because of fees. I figured it was easy enough to stroll my carry-on through security along with my laptop. Upon arriving to the security line I proceed to take out my liquids and put in a ziploc bag. Then i had to take out my laptop and put it in a separate bin. Don’t forget about the shoes and jacket! So here I am, 4 bins later and 2 hands walking through security. After surviving the security line I proceed to the gate. I check my ticket, I am zone 4 with a seat in the mid section of the airplane. As I walk down the aisle I notice, no where to put my bag. The previous zones, 1,2, and 3 have taken all of the spots. I have to walk all the way to the back of the airplane to park throw my bag up to the top of the bin. I workout, but let me say this, it was rough. I’m sure I didn’t look like the happiest traveler on the plane. And I couldn’t imagine what the mom with 4 kids would do. Not to mention paying for all of those carry-on bags.

So now they want to charge me for this??? Well one senator says he thinks this is a “slap in the face to travelers.”
