The FAA required that all airlines develop a new carry on baggage policy by 1/1/88. I am an F/a with airlines and I have not seen a change in the following requirement as of 3/88. 1) carry on baggage and 2) number of pieces carried on aboard. I am very disappointed in the follow up of this ruling as I feel that the safety of the F/a and of the flying public is/can be affected by the large carry on in an emergency situation. A stricter policy must be implemented.
