How to make youreself more hated by the other passengers. As if they didn't hate you for merely existing, now you're going to try to game the system by wearing a suitcase onto the plane. Are you going to sit their in it for 14 hours, flowing over into the aisle and your neighbour's seat(s)? You will be hated.

Are you going to try to take it off when you reach your seat, elbowing everybody around in eight directions and blocking the loading of the plane for twenty minutes, which might as well be all eternity? You will be hated!

Are you goiing to try to stuff it under your seat although it is now about the size and shape of a sleeping bag with a black bear cub in it? You will be hated!

Are you going to try to put it in the overhead bin which is already over-full with the stuff of the other jerks on the plane and which was orginally designed for a single ultra-slim briefcase (my theory is that the thinner the brief case the more powerful and high-ranking the person who carries it--you should be carrying absotulely nothing but an Apple Air laptop with a handy fold-down handle that turns it into a razor-sharp throwing ax.


You can not game the avaition system. The aviation system is based on weight and not on where the luggage is stowed.

It is like the famous Boarding House mathematics devised by the satirist and humourist Stephen Leacock.

All space on an airplane is spoken for. There is no unused space for smuggled baggage.
If there were any free space on an airplane, the airline could be making more money--which is absurd.

Your luggage will weigh the same whether you are wearing it or it is on another plane, and you will ultimately pay the same price. The airline's profit will be the same. It's like the pricing of water in bars--the bar has to make the same profit from you whether you drink champagen, beer, water or coffee. The prices are adjusted accordingly if the bar owner has the wit of a Swifter(TM) broom.
