Overhead bin space

Response to Couldn't have said it better!

Lakeview, years ago when Southwest was having their "Don't be a bin hog" campaign, I wrote to them and suggested that they charge for overhead bin space. My theory is that those bins would empty out very quickly if people had to pay extra to store their very precious K-Mart suitcase and J.C. Penney clothes. Southwest agreed with me but stated that the administration of the effort, and the ensuing arguments when someone felt that their bin space was being crowded by someone else's stuff would make it cost ineffective. They did send me a big bag of little peanut packets, though, and thanked me for my suggestion. Those peanuts were very popular at parties for a while.
