The only way to fly?
I saw the article about American Airlines that will allow people that travel with only a bag that fits under the seat in front of them preferred boarding.
Looks like I have two strikes against me. With me being 6-foot-5, that space below the seat in front of me is for my feet. If they want to insist that I put my bag there, then get rid of reclining seats so I don’t have to adjust my legs so that I am not in pain with the seat against my knees.
Being a business person, I have to travel with a lap-top bag. Having to travel with a medical device (CPAP), I need a second back for that. Check it at the gate? Only if I can get it back at the gate like strollers, walkers, and wheelchairs. Unless, of course, American agrees to replace this $5,000 machine if they lose it. The airlines have never lost a bag, have they? Rhetorical question.
It said Delta did not comment. Delta, take warning. You have competition if you decide to discriminate against me for my medical condition and height, neither of which I had anything to do with. Don’t they fall under your “acts of God” disclaimer?
