This would be a good time for ALL airlines to review the policy of cabin luggage. In spite of limitations as to the size and weight of the hand carried luggage into the cabin, I am amazed how this is often abused!!
This will also speed up security checks as you can always spot the “luggers on” who try to take into the cabin all sorts of diverse products that may compromise our safety.

There is really no need to carry luggage into the cabin, if airlines allow 1 piece of luggage to be checked in and restrict carry on to 1 piece – a size no larger than a briefcase which should accommodate everything that one needs on board!!
I have had heavy luggage fall on me while passengers try to get their suitcase ( obviously heavy) onto the bins above, etc..
