I went to Vegas over the weekend and I flew on US Airways for the first time. I travel a lot and whenever I've flown on any other airline, I've always been allowed to hold my purse in my lap. However, for my flight both to Vegas and back, the flight attendants told me that my purse had to go under the seat in front. They were very strict in enforcing that too. I wasn't prepared the first time so I stuffed my Chanel bag in one of those paper pillowcases that slip over the dinky little plane pillows. My question to everyone is where do you place your designer bags when you fly? Do you hold it in your lap? Overhead bin? PS- Just a little note to everyone. US Airways is awful. They were late both times. The first class seats are crappy. The employees were rude. And they made me throw away one of my bags upon boarding. I understand that everyone is allowed two carry-on bags but my "extra" bag was just a tiny little plastic bag with a paperback book in it. It was no big deal throwing the plastic bag away but the lady gave me so much attitude over it. It was embarassing.
