an entire fleet (or gender) don't make a whole lot of sense, without

you have to carry it yourself for TSA inspection. But this has nothing

airlines, allowing online check-in, at least we didn't have to wait in
1.5-hour line. It was well worth the inconveniece of finding an
service at my destination for our return flight. Besides, that way, I
lord it over the fools in the long-line and feel superior to them, even
I was in the same sardine-class cabin.
