I just returned Tuesday from a fllight from Manchester to Phoenix, with a changeover in Chicago. We were delayed on every leg of the journey by passengers attempting to stuff impossibly large bags into the overhead bins. What is it with these people? They block the aisle while the rest of us are trying to board and then waste the flight attendants time with their futile attempts to load their bags. One lady was trying to roll an obviously too large bag down the aisle and it was bouncing all over the place, hitting passengers in the legs and she did not even seem aware of what she was doing! I have definitely noticed an increase in this type of activity over the past several years. Seems to me that there must be some type of solution to this problem. I don't know how the flight attendants keep handling this with such courtesy and respect. That has got to be VERY trying for them each day!
