    Agreed. No one should not fly for fear of their chair being damaged. No one should fly ignorant of the possibility either. Be prepared for any eventuality as best as one can, especially when far...

    Yeah. How else you gonna do it? Sometimes I "snake" with it too. Using my hips to turn the chair and both arms to wiggle the cart, like one of those jointed skate boards. That's kinda fun...

    Damn! I dunno other than going "full Karen" on them, asking for the manger, to see that policy in writing, etc, etc. What a crappy thing for them to do. Frankly, the idea of some baggage flunky...
