Efficient luggage

Luggage designed for a particular plane

The overhead bins of commercial aircraft get their shape in part from the curvature of the fuselage of the aircraft. No rectangular piece of luggage could possibly use the available space efficiently. Proposed is luggage designed to fit specific planes, filling the space exactly. Frequent flyers who only fly their favorite airline might especially benefit from this, and they might even have a set that includes each of the various planes in their favorite carrier's fleet. (Jet Blue only uses the Airbus A320 and Embraer E190, for example.)

       This seems a trifle unfair to all those scatty fat cows, with huge tits that always get on the plane fifteen minutes late and try to stuff oversize packages into the overhead locker, plomping down next to you, crushing you for the entire flight.

       Those must be some truly gargantuan boobs.

       The problem is that I don't think the internal bins are that standardized, even among types. By the time a plane gets to be fifteen-twenty years old, it's been rebuilt and refitted many times.

       It's the wrecking-ball arses I hate. I can only imagine the seats are designed to withstand that sort of onslaught; my left ear isn't.

       Not as big as the booboo I made using that description.
