    Just to say, VA have gotten really strict about this now :( at the airport flying out, they even weighed the carry ons and they were telling people who were 1 or 2KG over in their hold luggage to rearrange or buy another case. Apparently they're now equally strict at the Orlando side :/

    Well I say YAY to getting strict on it. Fed up with me sticking to the guidelines and watching other people drag bags on to the plane they can barely lift and then try shoving them in the overhead compartments crushing my bag.

    That's very true and we've always wondered how people can get away with dragging huge bags on board

    I think it's good too, it's always been hit and miss whether you get away with being slightly over and I just knew that if it was me that tried to 'just get away with it' knowing my luck I'd get caught!!

    I've learnt to really cut back on the hand luggage. Only take the essentials and 1 book and gum for descending. I can't be bothered to trudge it around with me.

    We were well under this year, i was completely shocked!!

    However, i am fed up with the overhead locker things, this year on the way out and the way back we had things in our lockers already - it was the crew's things. I asked one of the flight attendants if their things would be in there the whole flight of if it was just in there "for now" as we had things that needed to go up there and couldnt get even one bag in there, she just looked at me with a dirty look and said "they will be in there the whole flight, cabin crew need somewhere to store their things aswell you know". I was really shocked at her reply and her attitude!! i assumed cabin crew had their own space to store things!
