Carry On or Checked Bags

  • Team Carry On won this round
  • Sometimes checked bags are good if you do not have to pay
  • Team carry on can prevent long times waiting for luggage
  • No worries about losing items when you carry on
  • Be careful as now some airlines are making you pay to put items in the overhead bin
