Thanks for that. I recall that some years ago, even silver could take a 2nd piece of hand luggage on M&M partners.
But you are right – lockers are ever more crowded. My last flight in C was so full that my luggage was placed in the coat locker on Austrian – but I see that even the locker may disappear with the new Recaro seats they are installing…
I’ll also put those Senator luggage tags on my hand baggage in an attempt to deter any over-zealous cabin staff on my next economy trip!
