I miss read the headline and thought it said "Crayons", and I thought why would they do that. May be kids with cheap fares are coloring the tray.
That is exactly what I thought it said ... and said "well, there will be a lot of disappointed children and adults alike" ... #bringingmyowncrayonsnow
Ha ha...Me too. Thought it said crayons as well. Had to read it twice....LOL
You know I don't mind playing the carry-on lottery. I go to the gate and wait. When they say the flight is full and would anyone like to check their carry-on. I am right there. I don't have to worry about finding an overhead or lugging it up and down the aisle. When I deplane the bag is usually waiting by the gate or after a fairly short wait. Hasn't failed me yet and I fly all over. It is a free checked bag and saves a lot of hassle for me.
I do the same... So to get $25 to do this would be great..
It seems to me if the two checked and one carry-on for SWA has produced nice profits and few to no complaints, other airlines seem to be in it just to nickel and dime passengers to death.
