Don’t Put Small Bags in the Overhead Bin
Unless you’re in the bulkhead or exit row (on some airlines), don’t put your carry-on bag in an overhead bin if it’s small enough to go under the seat in front of you. You rarely see planes going out with extra bin space, and that’s because everyone puts their bag(s) and coat(s) in the overhead. If there’s leftover space once the door is shut, you can then move your smaller carry-on(s) to the bin. The point is: Be considerate of others, and use only the space you need.

I disagree. Every customer is entitled to use the top lockers, or dare I say check their bags. Why clog your feet space because someone else has a big carry on ?
