Robert Bagamery's comments regarding carry-on luggage are right on the mark (Airport blame game, Letters, April 26).
I can't count the number of times that I have boarded a plane with just a briefcase and coat only to find that the bins close to my seat are already full of oversized cases or garment bags. I then have a choice of very limited leg room or having my things on my lap the entire journey.
This problem is exacerbated by the habit of flight crews to take up several overhead bins with their own luggage as well as various supplies. Complaints to airlines about these problems fall on deaf ears.
It is indeed about time the rules as published and even reinforced at check-in are applied.
