Yip..loved my last flight...personal search without any notification....boss git his boarding pass and almost got sent to Arabia instead of Connecticut....we boarded in proper order only to find that the overheads were crammed full and my ins small bag would not fit so it had to be put under the seat in front of me...hey, I'm 5'7", not a real monster, it restricted my legs for 2 hours and threw my knees and one hip out to the point that I could hardly get to my car after the flight.....yip, can't wait to see what us paying customers will get treated to next

I simply will not fly on a A380 under those conditions. How long will it take to get those people to get their overhead bins set? No thanks
