Forcing people to check bags when the bags are clearly within allowed limits is ridiculous. Later all the bins were empty. Why harass passengers like this? Serving people in the first 12-13 rows DIFFERENT food than the rest of the passengers on a so called full service airline flight is disgusting. There must have been several people who got assigned the front row seats who didn't pay because it was a sort of full flight. It doesn't matter. You just don't do something so small minded and mean. Never seen that before.
