I spent a bit of time this month writing about IATA’s proposed ‘Cabin OK’ program: introducing it, clearing up misconceptions, and, finally, reporting on its demise, er, “pause.” This is one of two posts today, which review the Cabin OK aftermath. I promise to let the matter drop after that.
In truth, IATA proposing that we carry a bit less with us when we travel, especially in the main cabin, was not a terrible idea. Obviously, any further baggage restrictions were bound to get people upset–but it wasn’t mandatory. In practical terms, we shouldn’t travel with too much baggage and we probably do.
