Yes. You can too; try Google.
That makes me think it was a weight issue and it wasn't a mistake but planned by the airline. Especially since you said it’d fit under a seat.
Unfortunately almost certainly not. AA flies exclusively the A321 and A319 from CLT to MCO, which are relatively big mainline aircraft and do not run with weight restrictions on that short of a flight. More likely the baggage handlers had already finished the aircraft and moved on to another so there was nobody available on the ramp to stuff it in the C-bin - CLT and PHX are very highly banked, which is why this occurs. ORD on the other hand really isn't as much because of slot congestion so it's less of an issue there.
The only other scheduled commercial service between those two airports is Frontier on an A321, and otherwise it's GA.
No, it meant they knew what they did and where it was the entire time.
Oh, he was there. He was standing there at the top of the ramp when I walked up to board, you know, the spot right at the top, by the door that goes out to ladder down to the tarmac, that's right there by the door to the airplane? I handed my bag to the bag handler there. He and I are the ones that talked about how it was odd that my bag had to be tagged
So that makes me very confused why they wouldn’t just let you put it under your seat space? Unless you were in a seat without storage.
You only need to read a few threads on this very board to see how routinely people bring bags that are past the size limit on board aircraft. With no concern if they have to make it fit sideways, i.e take up someone else's bag space.
There are already so many Disney related abbreviations used on the Dis, a few air travel ones shouldn't be a problem.
You and me both. No I was not a seat with no underseat storage. I know what they are.
I fly often. I bring this backpack often. I know well what fits and what doesn't.
I know the process well. I have gold status with AA and normally board priority but connecting flight prevented us from our boarding in normal spot
The gate agent decided I had to gate check it. He tagged it was I walked down to jetway. There was no arguing with him. Not if I wanted on the plane
Sorry to hear about everyone's issues with luggage. We fly JetBlue and never had a luggage problem
Yes our carry on has our glasses, toothbrushes, a set of extra clothes, contacts, phone, whatever we need immediately.
JetBlue by far wins hands down for customer service e, only works if they fly to/from the airports you need to use, but they are the best.
Yeah, the best airline in the world is not very good when it doesn't fly to the airport near you, LOL
