Allegiant Air announced today that they are expanding its service out of Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) to include nine new year-round destinations. To date, it’s one of the airline’s largest expansions out of a single airport.
I swear, I think I must have an invisible sign over my head that says, “Attention American Airline employees: make sure her bag will fit in the overhead” that only turns visible in the presence of said American Airline employees.

It never happens with Delta employees. Not Frontier ones, either. And not Southwest or JetBlue – and I’ve been on all those brands of planes since the last time this happened.
