I wished that the fact of being a member of Nikonians would make a difference for the amount of photo gear that I could take as carry-on luggage. I am fed-up of discussing or for that matter filling my jacket with lenses each time I go through check-in.
The airlines themselves tell you that you should not pack valuable items in the check-in luggage yet they ##### about the weight when you carry the long lens with you. The weight limit for hand-luggage most airlines have is simply ridiculous, why haven't we yet reached a deal with some airlines to have more carry-on luggage allowance for photo gear by producing a Nikonians card?
We seem to be many and we travel a lot and represent a lot of business for these airlines so why don't we flex our muscle and get some proper, considerate, treatment from the very same airlines we are giving our money too?
Such agreement will not generate more funds for Nikonians .
I am also in the process of writing an article about these "unfriendly skies" and for my own research would appreciate feedback on any particularly painful experiences with airlines .
