It was reported recently that airlines across the world are planning an even smaller standard for carry on luggage. The International Air Transportation Association (IATA) claim this move will ensure that everyone can fit their carry on luggage into the overhead bins. This claim is pretty ridiculous, as the main reasons the overhead bins are crammed are charging for checked bags and cutting the size of overhead bins. Additionally, the seats that are used on planes are usually not the ones called for by the original manufacturer, and those seats have more room underneath. The airlines prefer to use smaller seats so they can jam them closer together and herd more passengers on per flight.
