Perhaps it is just me but whilst airside waiting for your flight that the sizes of some so called carry on bags seem to far exceed what i perceive to be the average maxima for baggage dimensions?
Every time I wonder through a departure lounge and by the gates I always see several people with baggage that quite clearly are oversized and I do begin to wonder why I go to the trouble of travelling light doing the right thing and complying with a particular airlines size limits.
Perhaps my judgement is gradually getting worse but I just wondered if anyone else had noticed the same?
Not that I would ever take the kitchen sink with me(unless of course I'm travelling with family in which case we check in hold bags) but a slightly larger backpack would come in useful!!!
