Yup TRAINS - occasionally, when I really stretch out, I can touch the seat back in front of me... but not easily.
I'll stop now... Although a ban would perhaps be the missing piece in the jigsaw of life?

Just, again, took the overnight ferry to UK, with car. Very relaxing, comfortable, good value. Depending on arrival port you arrive 07.30 or 09.00, refreshed, watered & fed with your own car and all you chattels. The alternative would be an 07.00 flight = getting out of bed at 04.00 then renting a car. You lose an evening at home, but the cost is not so much more than a flight +++. If you planned an evening hotel at one end then the ferry really wins; if you operate not too far from either port.
The same is true for the X-channel ferries. Book a late one turn up for the earlier one; no bother, no charge, no fuss and with 20min checkin possible if you can get through the passport check. Driving from Dover to London in your own motor, or trying to survive any of the airports and train. No brainer.

In the very near future, pax will be actively targeted for excess hand baggage and charged a fee for non fitting items - gate charging for hand baggage coming soon.

BA still has further till it hits the bottom in service.

skysky - I see nothing wrong with charging for carry-on that won't go under the seat in front. Nothing at all.

But I seriously doubt BA will be the first.

I would warmly welcome such a move.

And where did you get this from? Not a re-run of a United Airlines thread from another forum by any chance?
