Swiss Air

We’ve all been there

I’m sorry, this bag is too big or heavy to fit in our overhead compartment, we’ll need to gate check it

To which of course any reasonable traveler responds

Like fuck you are

And then of course the airline wins anyway because that’s how the world works. Usually following this gate-check extravaganza come broken luggage handles, damage to the frame and wheels, scuff marks, late delivery, your bag put on the wrong plane and on and on ad infinitum. These things have all happened to me, most of them in the past couple years. I no longer trust airlines with my bags.
