On the Western Flyer convertible travel briefcase/carry-on bag:
“I get no grief from the airlines here in Australia at all, even the new low cost Tiger from Singapore which seems to have lots of control freaks looking out for oversize hand luggage.
My work mates are amazed that I can get away with it, but it has been so liberating.
The only downside is that my Aeronaut now has dust on it!
The other great thing I got at the shop was the Freudian slip. Who would have thought such a simple thing would revolutionise my travelling with files.” – posted by CanusDom in the TOM BIHN Forums.
“On the whole, I love the bag–it’s obviously well-constructed (though if you’re on this forum, you probably know that) and, with the packing cubes, is easy to organize. With the size and shape and weight of it, I had no problems getting it by myself into overhead bins on planes and trains. (Not a factor for the young and fit, but becoming more of an issue for me.) I had no trouble on Air New Zealand–notorious for stingy weight limits–or on Austrian Air, which stations employees in Vienna halfway down the jetway to intercept bags that look too big or heavy to them. ” – posted by flitcraft in the TOM BIHN Forums.
