>>2333884>Why do you care about overhead bins if you have checked bags anyway?
a. not supposed to check lithium batteries in with your luggage. pretty universal rule unless you're flying some cowboy airline
b. safeguard against delayed/missing luggage. been stranded without luggage a few times so I always keep a set of clean socks and undies and something warm in the bottom of my carry-on bag. It's just insurance (that has paid off in the past)>>2333903
they only call once in my part of the world before general boarding, then they use the general + priority lanes to get people onboard faster. the last flight I had a few weeks ago had some boomer arc up at me because I skipped the queue to stand in the priority lane when I had every right to do so. fuck it, I spend enough time in airports, I'm abusing every little perk given to me
