I do watch this process--I fly as much as you. (Highest tier on my carrier) People with 20" bags put them in wheels first because they can do so and have them fit.


Most does not mean all. But the airport (Orlando?) you fly out of carries a different clientele then lets say Miami. When I've flown in/out of Orlando for my yearly conferences the passengers are business-like and are courtious. But in Miami or Ft Lauderdale the passengers are very different.
Most Orlando passengers are families with kids and giant stuffed Mickeys. It's not "business-like at all! Thank God for CLEAR so I don't have to deal with the TSA nightmare that is MCO.

It doesn't matter, women put their hand bag under the seat in front of them.

Mine is Delta because is goes to nearly everywhere I need to go internationally. Majority of my flights are international and on those flights none of this crap happens. But on national flights it seems to be worse connecting in certain hubs (Newark, Atlanta) and certain destinations.
National? You mean domestic? And I fly internationally as well, and yes, the same crap happens. Thank God I fly business/first when on an overseas long haul.

I don't like to call it domestic. On short haul flights I'll tend to call it Cattle Class. As to overseas long haul, I fly the same way. I like the new mini-cabins with lie flat seats (beds), walls and even a door.
