Could just allow 1 carryon sized bag for free.

Is the idea of UX and UI being distinct skillsets actually true in 2022? Outside of research, a good designer should always be thinking through user experience from flows, wireframes, and UI right? Having a UX strategist pass on a user flow or wireframes to a UI designer to “color in”reduces the latter to a production designer. Anyone agree or disagree? Would love to hear thoughts.
