    "With the exceptions of Southwest and JetBlue, all major airlines followed suit after American started checked bag fees in 2008. While airlines have made billions annually in checked luggage fees..."

    Thanks for posting this article, uggboy! It's simply ust one more reason why I enjoy travelling on Southwest Airlines in the US!

    I have a Tumi international carry on/roll-aboard. It's slightly shorter and wider than the regular (domestic?) roll-aboard, but has the same capacity. I love Tumi's replacement policy and warranty.

    Believe it or not, Hartmann luggage has an even better replacement policy and warranty than Tumi! Tumi's warranty replacement policy is limited to 5 years. Hartmann has a lifetime warranty!

    Indeed Tumi offers superior quality products. Regarding roll-aboard sizes, that's important to keep in mind is maybe easier to handle within the US, we shouldn't forget that within Europe many airlines have weight restriction too, especially some low cost carriers.

    Well said. Our roll aboard is a Samsonite, many happy memories while on travel, looking for many more great memories ahead. :)
