People failing to be able to identify their own baggage in the overhead compartments on planes.

I think they should make checked bags free and charge for carry-ons. Then maybe you could get off the plane in less than half an hour.

I have been on three flights now where the flight attendants had to open every overhead compartment in the plane for a person who could neither:

a) remember what their luggage looked like
b) remember which compartment they put their luggage in

Each time causing an enormous commotion of hollering and fussing between the dolt unable to recognize the luggage, the flight attendants, and usually 2+ disgruntled passengers. And each time preventing me from being able to sleep on the flight.

This! When I was coming back from Arizona a few weeks ago people were just bringing all their luggage on the plane!

Now a backpack I can live with or a small bag but a fucking big suitcase! Why the hell do you need that on the plane?

You don't have size restrictions for carry-ons on domestic flights?

Jet Blue does. I think it's 18"x24" but I'm not sure. I haven't been on a plane in going on 5 years.

Technically yes, but no one enforces them. I don't think you should be able to bring on anything that doesn't fit under the seat in front of you.

Of course we do. Practically every airline in the world does, and TSA has their own limits about what size bags can fit through the scanning machines at airports as well, so that effectively covers every airline that flies via the USA at a minimum.

Of course they do - just not consistently. Most of the time, if the flight is full (which is nearly always the case for domestic flights these days), then as the plane starts to fill up during the boarding process, they start forcing passengers to valet check their bags, which means they tag it and take it from you at the end of the jetway and then give it back to you at the end of the jetway at the end of that flight segment (in other words, it doesn't have to go through the baggage handling system). They do this at no additional cost to prevent cluster fucks on flights due to people trying to cram oversize bags into the overhead bins that obviously don't fit there. If your bag is obviously too large, they'll force you to valet check it whether the flight is full or not (but like I said, really large bags won't even make it past security because TSA flags them early in the process).
