Anyone else sick and tired of encountering those great big staff wheelie bags in the overhead compartment of the rotten 737 J class?

It’s not like I board last… but every flight recently has had at least one and it takes up so much room! Those bags wouldn’t even make the cut if they were places in the size check at checkin.

I can’t wait for the A320!

Cabin crew are way more important than top-fare paying customers. Their bags couldn't possibly go in the hold could they? Not sure 320 will make much difference, they'll just bring bigger bags.

It defies logic to keep their bag in J class. It is not like they do not walk up and down the aisle, and they are also the last to deplane, and they do not need access to their bags during flight. I'm yet to understand their reasons properly!

The cheek of them, taking up space for those down the back of the plane who put their bags in J as they are walking past.

Ex crew here. Bags were supposed to be as close to your crew position as possible so we can keep an eye on them and access things if needed . So they were placed in the coat closet or if that was full, the overhead locker. It’s not to inconvenience anyone it’s just procedure.

"It's just procedure". One of the most pathetic excuses ever. Can't fault crew for adhering to it, but what inconsiderate pen-pusher made the rule in the first place? I'm sure top-fare pax would like to "keep an eye" on their bags too. Crew bags in the closet OK. If needed, get a bigger closet. Overheads for passengers please.

The phrase ‘access things if needed’ the next bit is expected to be understood ‘… if needed for their work.’ Fine with me.

Ex crew also however only allowed to bring on the small cabin shoulder bag which was placed nearest to crew station,all wheelie had to be checked in or scattered through economy overheads.

Yep, one less toilet wouldn't be a problem, for them - lol. Couldn't possibly remove one seat...

They could always remove another toilet and convert the space to a cupboard.....just saying, not suggesting
