    A new member's opening post is controversial and certainly got attention and prompted a lively debate. airside writes about the importance of Carry-on luggage and suggests that
    making the wrong choice in what to buy could spell disaster
    Our newbie then offers this advice
    hereís a short list of what not to buy: Anything under $100 .. Two wheeled bags .. Hard sided bags .. Garment bags .. Bags that are actually too big to qualify as carry on
    Some members questioned the true motivation behind the poster, and most didnít agree with the 'advice', in particular the point about avoiding 2-wheeled bags.
    Two wheeled vs. four wheeled is an easy choice for carry on - obviously two wheels win. Four wheels eat into the overall size of the bag thus reducing what you can carry.
    but agree that
    2/4 wheels is a fair debate. I have a hard sided 4 wheeler and a 2 wheel soft case- the werks someone else posted above, actually. The 4 wheeler loses a lot of room due to its wheels but is very manoeuvrable on a good surface
    Our Senior Member, anat0l adds that the travellers does need to do some homework so that they are
    well aware of the airline's policies - do not rely on airlines giving leeway, or "but I got away with it last time - why not now" - these do not work and just invite trouble

    Re: Claiming VAT

    I seem to remember that there was a limit of $1,500?? That they can pay in cash. Otherwise it goes on the credit card either Euro or USD. I could be wrong. Re claiming it varies by country and store....

    Re: Passangers seperated during online check-in

    Has there been an aircraft change on a full flight resulting in the change?

    Calling won't help at this stage.

    Re: Amex $150 off $300 Spend by 31Jan2017

    Maybe check the offers section on your account online and see if the offer says it has been redeemed with card. Mine said that before the money was credited.

    Re: Take away food from lounge

    I have to confess to once taking quite a large number of little sausages off a breakfast buffet in Athens and walking around feeding them to the stray dogs - they just were so heart breaking.
