Very true... I often carry my ReLoad bag as my "purse" knowing that I'm taking advantage of the purse thing... that's where I keep all my carry on stuff (the real carry on stuff). My camera and laptop go in the backpack. No problems once I figured out how to work the system.

Men get away with briefcases... I've seen this. They'll have their carry on and a briefcase bulging with... something. Men should get a briefcase and a backpack and that should be enough for them to also get around the rule.

Japan Airlines is the only airline I've had problems with. They mean business and will weight and measure your carry on and everything... and they mean ONE carry-on, and no exceptions, unless you fly business or first class.
