@vancouverpetunia  Are you serious? Good to know! You really do learn something new everyday. I'm lucky in that I get "news" from my sister if there's anything weird and wacky going on at Toronto airport but obviously she doesn't know about any others that she has ever mentioned to me. She'll mention industry news if there is something national, or if there is something special out of customs.


@calgarybride2015  That lady I was mentioning last fall, she had roller bags and I guess it can mess up the overhead bins too! With wheels sticking out it makes it harder to get them to fit. I watch people trying to stuff their bags into overheads and just chuckle to myself. You know how they make the announcement when you land about being careful when you open them because the contents could have shifted in flight? lmao Well - I've seen why!!!  And how do you get it all into a backpack???


Thankfully we don't have a lot of décor stuff, and our welcome bags I think we're going to do at home before we go. There are only 4 so it's not a big deal.

I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

@acw271011   Ok I wasn't one of those! haha!    Generally when I travel I only have a back pack with my ipad, camera, purse and maybe a magazine & a snack. I usually check everything else.     For the wedding I brought as much on the plane as I could while being reasonable!  


Next month when we go to Vegas in economy and have to pay for a checked bag, I am going to hate it HAHHA!


Married on 2015/01/21 at the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya with 43 guests in attendance   :)

I've found that it's been tougher to get my carry on bag (with wheels) through the new regulations. I did a lot of business travel last fall and it was always a crap shoot. Hint: if you get through with your bags put them into the overhead bin with wheels in and handle out. Makes more room for other bags than sideways and tends to fit better than wheels out.
