With the rise in checked baggage fees, travelers are choosing to carry on luggage instead. In turn, airlines are becoming more stern with carry-on luggage size rules. Some airlines are making travelers pay for carry on luggage or having bags gate-checked due to the amount of people opting to avoid checking bags, which defeats the purpose of carrying on your luggage.
