Oct 29th 2009 1:54PM I have a small carry-on that fits in all overheads easily (except RJ's). I've seen people with large "carry-on's" that should be checked. Part of the problem is that some people cannot travel for a few days or a weekend without packing like they're going away for a year. Also, some people have an "entitlement" mentality, meaning that because they paid $79 to cross the country, they're entitled to be treated as though they paid $1,000. Paying $15 or even $25 to check a bag is not unreasonable considering the fares most people are paying to get a seat are unrealistcally low and unprofitable for the airlines.
