It's the hoisting that's tough

June 08, 2008

Traveling with one bag ["Fees Weighing You Down? Lighten Up," Travel Insider, June 1] is the best idea for air travel, except when you have to lift it to an overhead bin.

I travel often and usually alone and know not to expect assistance with placing my luggage up there. That carry-on bag gets mighty heavy with even a week's worth of clothes and travel necessities, even when I work to find truly lightweight luggage. I always appreciate assistance from a volunteer but surely don't feel that can be expected today.

I'd happily pay a flight attendant for assistance rather than check my luggage; maybe there's a new idea.
