I confess that it drives me insane seeing huge bags being loaded into overhead lockers at take off never to be touched again until landing.

It was the airlines deciding to charge for checking in luggage that caused this, not the people with huge bags (although not huge, the limits are clear). When we travel for a weekend away, we take all we need in hand luggage. This is because we can have a weekend away without having to pay for the pleasure of taking and checking in a suitcase.

The fact we don't touch our hand luggage in the overhead locker for the entire journey is absolutely irrelevant.

I would just like consistency. It irritates me when they weigh your hand luggage in 1 queue but not another. 1 year Thomas cook refused 3 of ours because they were 1/2 " too big for the basket size guide, the handle stuck out of the top. When we got on the plane we saw loads of people with much bigger hand luggage than ours. We just happened to get in the queue that Mrs Jobsworth was checking in.
