|Waiting for a train in Cobh, Ireland|
This last time, however, we felt that the message from the airlines is that carry-on luggage is preferred. And darn little of that. We would have to pay a surcharge for each checked bag - AND wait at a carousel. Double dose of annoyance factor. So, being thrifty people we managed two weeks with carry-on luggage. Fortunately, we went to a warm place with no heavy clothes required. Shorts and T-shirts don't take up much space. My hiking boots, however, took up a LOT of space.
Anyway, this is what I was actually wondering: if everyone thinks the way we do , there will be a lot of empty space in the baggage hold(?), area (?). How will the airlines use this space? Will they solicit commercial cargo to supplement their revenue from each flight? More
Oh, my faith in flying is being severely tested with these thoughts. Must put them out of my mind.
