This is great!! Reduces boarding time a lot! And removes the hideous waiting to get to your seat because everyone has to push their bags in at the same time.
Also increases safety, passengers have been killed by flying suitcases during heavy turbulence.
Would expect this from a low cost carrier , but United ? Surely not …
Not even Cebu Pacific does this. And believe me, Cebu Pacific is the lowest of low cost carriers.
Clearly haven’t flown Ryanair. ;)
Ryanair have them. They look cool.
Dangit. Would this affect standbys too.
You have to pay to use overhead lockers. That’s so dumb. Where do you put your hand luggage
United is going down on best US airline list. This is as I call blasphemy to pay for overhead use.
Under the seat in front of you…?
One person tweeted, “I will be wearing everything for the trip … 4 pairs of socks lots of underwear 3 pairs of pants shirts.”
Lol. It’s actually come to that point.
They will be offering basic economy alongside normal economy. Basic you have to pay extra for overhead bins, standard economy it’s included.
Not even Ryanair have done this, United is ruining its already bad service
Now this, doesn’t surprise me at all…:)
United has entered the Spirit Airlines market. Sketchy.
United you do what you want lol. If it takes customer service away from you and brings it to the better carriers I’m all for it.
What better carriers do you speak of?
Southwest is still pretty friendly but lacks a first/business class cabin. I fly them whenever AA is unreasonable or doesn’t fly direct.
Frontier of course…must I repeat myself ;)
Yes guys I know most people don’t like em but in my opinion Frontier is the better Carrier. please don’t eat my eyes.
I don’t hear much about them these days.
Probably because they don’t hub out of DFW.
What about the big bags people bring?
