It seems to be at least unofficially official that UA will begin to strictly enforce the requirements of their sizers on March 1. Although I have not seen any announcement from UA, they aren't denying it, either. There has been plenty of banter about the oversized carry-ons that go overhead, but what about the personal item dimensions? Since a 15 inch laptop is 10" deep, that means that there is no way to use a laptop case to carry it aboard. I asked a GA for advice, as I need it to be accessible during flight. Her advice was, "Buy a smaller laptop." Gee... Why didn't I think of that. I wrote to 1Kvoice to get some more useful advice, and I received this reply: Thank you for contacting United Airlines. The only suggestion I can make for the situation with your lap top, would be to pull it out of your bag in the overhead prior to departure and either put it under the seat in front of you, or in the seat pocket if it will fit. I have however forwarded your comments to the management personnel responsible for review, and I am confident that your comments will be taken into consideration as we continue to review our aircraft and any necessary changes. Thank you for choosing United Airlines and MileagePlus. You are a valued customer and your business is appreciated. Sincerely, Wxxxx Hxxxxxx Customer Care Manager That reply is so laughable that I didn't even respond to point at the obvious issues which it would cause. My laptop case, a Tumi roller, is admittedly too big. It's so big, in fact, I don't even like it. I bought the extra deep version because at the time I thought having extra storage space would come in handy. It does, but it's not as maneuverable as I want, nor is it always easy to stow under the seat in front of me. I'm willing to buy a new case, but not until I see where (if?) the dust settles. I can't find one that is under about 12.5 inches tall, and that's 1.5 inches over the actual dimensions of the personal sizer. The sizer is 1" taller than the stated personal item limits, so now what? Personally, I think this policy is doomed. There are far too many passengers who carry and use 15" computers aboard. In the meantime, I am not going to keep lugging around my big ol' Tumi, nor am I going to spend the $400 to $500 required for a good replacement that is reasonably (but not legally) sized. My personal item is going to be a heavy duty 4 mil industrial clear poly bag. Image be damned!
