I guess in the old days, airlines didn't lose baggage.

OK.  So it is alright to be tightly packed in a tube with other people breathing recirculated air because the real danger is stowing luggage.  Got it.

The bags don't breathe on each other. I guess it has to do with how passengers load the compartments. Lots of breathing right over top of people to do that. It's still an insignificant risk compared with simply being packed together for the duration of a flight.

At least you won't be required to carry that briefcase internally.

Well, that's a terrible idea.
Imagine trying to evacuate that plane in the event of a crash.
Imagine trying to fly a plane where you've moved the lateral center of gravity up a couple of feet.
Imagine taking a sharp turn while you're lying down on the top row.
Imagine trying to provide a meal service.
Imagine getting dribbled off the cabin ceiling during minor turbulence.

Yes, and they had huge club seats that turned into beds on intercontinental flights, and everyone wore suits, and no one picked their toes, and the Boeing 377 Stratocruiser was laid out for luxury, not economics, in the 1940s.

While I don't follow the logic here, I'd welcome this change. It would make getting on and off SO much faster and easier.

/I take my computer bag (so the luggage gorillas don't break it - seats are no longer big enough to open the laptop) and a book.
