    Do you check your luggage when flying? Should there be a requirement to?

    I fly somewhere 2-3 times every month and lately I have noticed that flights are getting later and later because of all the luggage that comes on board and then has to carried back to the front to be checked into the belly of the plane. When we had the ban for carry on luggage, I never saw a late flight, I wish all luggage had to checked. What say you?

    With all of the new checked bag fees, I am sure that the airlines would agree with you.

    Not as long as airlines are charging checked bag fees.

    Personally I haven't seen that causing an issue. I've never had a flight leave late because the last few people on the plane had to check their bags.

    I really haven't seen a problem, and I travel every couple of months. Are you saying people should be forced to pay to have their luggage stowed?

    I never check my luggage. I've got a bag that is exactly the correct dimensions for the overheard and if it doesn't fit in there I don't take it with me. The one time I did check my luggage it didn't arrive until I was already home again.

    I agree. It is really a pain. I travel to Los Angeles from Phila and they are pretty good with unloading the luggage at both airports. It's not as long as boarding and waiting for the over capacity luggage to be removed from the plane before takeoff. Truly annoying.

    Nope. They don't want your underwear in their hold which is why they charge the fee to keep you from using it. They want that space to haul around mail, produce, dead bodies, etc that are much more profitable for them.
