Sure, I’ve occasionally purchased a small travel item I thought might make onebagging easier but I’d never think of buying any luggage. Most of what I’ve seen is overpriced and wheeled. Of course, if I had some type of baggage mishap–unlikely with the way I travel–I guess I would have to buy something then and there. After all, why would anyone else do that?
It seems there are lots of people who buy luggage and for more reasons than I could think of says USA Today. They have an article in today’s paper titled “Who Buys Luggage At An Airport.”
Apparently, lots of people do. And business is good.
Over-packers seem to make up the majority of those buying bags at the airport. Which is fine with me because if these people buy those big bags, it will leave the overheads free for us.
