    Interesting – taking Continental’s advertising for “love your carry-on” or “take an old friend, your carry-on, with you” (or whatever the slogan was recently) to a whole new level. I agree – this has great potential to slow the boarding, but who can blame them.

    I don’t blame them for doing it – I’d rather someone else pay more instead of me having to pay more – but it still sucks. It still amazes me that the airlines struggle so much to raise fares. That being said, there have been ~6 fare increases already in 2008, and no fare cuts, so it looks like the airlines are getting a bit of both.
