Return your product to tumi saying it doesn't meet carry on criteria... unless you're that person bringing a checked bag on the plane acting like it's a carry on. Never sure how these ppl make it through security

I snuck around them last week. They were too busy chatting and being useless to notice me scurry by trying to hide my bag with my body. Quite pleased with myself.

That sucks re: fining gate agents. Annoyed because in the 3 years I've had the bag, I have never been stopped. Includes at least a dozen weeks in and out of this exact terminal.

Yep. FAA fines airlines if they don't implement. No win situation. I actually got to the bottom of it to prove my point and found out that sometimes airlines pass on the fines to gate agents of they are not monitoring which I think of unfair. Then I decided to just get a new bag.

Well, is it?

This was someone at security?

Had same in BOS but only once in 6 flights. Was some goober outside TSA pre with a sizer. I complained but they didn't care.

happens at ord all the time in AA precheck. i hate those women

YES, also in PHL. AA pre-check nazis 😡

I stopped flying AA because of it
