Nevilles Travails - Italy #1


The British queue. Low-cost airlines make you queue. That's fair, we get it. Naturally, we HATE queue-jumpers! The woman was a queue-cheat, exhibiting signs of jumping intentions at the airport. Seats were allocated, so why jump the queue? Because space for cabin luggage is limited... if there's no space for your bag onboard, then it's stowed in the hold, adding extra time at the destination. Barging ahead, she stowed her bag in the overhead locker. Poor husband, embarrassed, didn't queue-jump. His bag was sent to the hold.

What goes round comes round the baggage carousel...eventually!

    In retrospect it seems crazy for us to get so irritated about it, but that's one of the burdens of being English.

    This always bugs me, too. I am always amazed at what people try to stuff into
    the overhead storage. Having said that, the last trip we took, our luggage was
    missing for three days and we had to live out of our carry-on in Morocco. All you
    really need is a toothbrush!
