      Free to think, free to believe

      Thanks to The Law in the UK - bags can only be a certain size and therefore your folks with bigger bags would be sent back to either check in their luggage, store it somewhere or post it off (if the folks seeing them off have already left).

      The unintended consequence of this policy was that some folk trying to get through boarding gates/security barrier have been sent back to check luggage in - thereby delaying them from going through the boarding gate... not so different from your tale in the end. {No I don't believe it makes the skies a suffer place which is, overtly, the supposed intended consequence.}

      Free to Think: There's a "small" bag-size policy for most US airlines, e.g., "does your bag fit here," but it's not often enforced.

      Airlines serving my local airport all fly a variety of craft depending upon season (weather & altitude challenge as well as seasonal passenger load swings). Therefore, you never know what will be at the gate (well, we do because we book on-line...). However, if your bag is too big for the overhead on a particular craft, it is "gate checked" at the ramp & picked up there after deplaning - saving, for those in the know, the frustration of the baggage claim merry-go-round every time!! Unintended Result - Many big bags going thru security screening that wouldn't fit on ANY of the planes, taking screening time and sometimes not fitting through the x-ray, etc.

      Randy: interesting consequence!

      Unintended consequences perhaps, but also thoroughly predictable ones. That's the part of this business decision that I cannot understand. I keep trying to visualize the meeting where this was discussed. The only thing that comes to mind is that it might have been like the meeting where the folks at M&Ms turned down Speilberg when he offered them product placement in E.T.

      Have no enough money to buy a house? You not have to worry, just because that's available to take the credit loans to resolve such kind of problems. Thus get a short term loan to buy all you need.
