不要再瞎说新的飞机行李箱

不要再瞎说新的飞机行李箱,看看到底怎么回事!

------爱飞行俱乐部董事长 资深机长陈建国

 

一些媒体或者商家不厚道,IATA好好的一个建议,被误解误读给搁置了!

最近关于飞机手提行李箱的问题,很多媒体、自媒体都在搭上这个顺风车,但是大部分都在误解误读,并没有了解这个问题的本身到底怎么回事?

我们来仔细解读一下来龙去脉!其实根本就不是那回事!

什么是IATA?

首先看看来源,这个事由IATA(国际航空运输协会)发布的一个新闻引起,那么IATA是什么组织呢?

以下是他们网站的介绍:

About us

TheInternational Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association for theworld’s airlines, representing some 260 airlines or 83% of total air traffic.We support many areas of aviation activity and help formulate industry policyon critical aviation issues.

(关于我们:国际航空运输协会(IATA)是全球各航空公司的行业协会,代表约260家航空公司或者航空运输总周转量的83%。我们为航空事务的许多领域提供支持,并帮助制定航空关键问题的行业规则。)

也就是说,国际航空运输协会并不是一个纯粹的官方组织,也不是所以的航空公司都是协会的会员。但是由于它制定了很多行业标准,协调各公司之间的运输事物,所以很多人认为它是一个半官方的组织!

事件的来由?

IATA在6月9号发布了一个新闻:

Airlines to Address Carry-On Bag Dilemma

Miami, 9 June 2015 – The International AirTransport Association (IATA), announced a new initiative to optimize theaccommodation of carry-on bags given differing carry-on bag sizes and airlinepolicies.

Working with airline members of IATA and aircraftmanufacturers, an optimum size guideline for carry-on bags has been agreed thatwill make the best use of cabin storage space. A size of 55 x 35 x 20 cm (or21.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 inches) means that theoretically everyone should have achance to store their carry-on bags on board aircraft of 120 seats or larger.

An “IATA Cabin OK” logo to signify to airline staffthat a bag meets the agreed size guidelines has been developed. A number ofmajor international airlines have signaled their interest to join theinitiative and will soon be introducing the guidelines into their operations.

原文大意是这样的,推荐使用一个“IATA Cabin OK”的标志,表示该手提行李箱的尺寸是合适的。使用这种行李箱,能保证即使所有的人都使用这个尺寸以下的行李箱的情况下,不会因为客舱放置不下而需要移至货仓。对于使用这个“IATA Cabin OK”的箱子,可以在客舱行李全满的情况下,可能优先留在客舱。

事后的解释

这则新闻引起的误解立即传遍全球,很多行李箱生产厂家和一些媒体开始过度解读这则新闻,搭上顺风车趁机吸引眼球,给大家造成很多误解,尤其北美反应最为强烈。所以在IATA在6月12日发出一篇新闻专门解释大家的误读:

Geneva, 12 June - The International Air TransportAssociation (IATA) issued comments clarifying key elements of its Cabin OKinitiative which have been misunderstood in some reporting. The IATA Cabin OKinitiative for carry-on bags aims to provide passengers with a greaterassurance that their carry-on bags will travel with them in the aircraft cabin,even when the flight is full.。。。

Further detailed clarifications follow:

? Cabin OK is a guideline, not a standard.

? Cabin OK does not replace airline maximum sizelimitations.

? Cabin OK is an optimum size, not a maximumsize.

? Cabin OK will give passengers greater certaintythat their carry-on bag will be accepted in the cabin.

? The Cabin OK initiative does not requirepassengers to buy new baggage.

? CabinOK is not a revenue generating scheme for the airlines.

? Cabin OK is an identifier to crew and groundstaff.

? “CabinOK is all about providing the customer with greater assurances.

“For passengers traveling with bags that don’t havethe Cabin OK logo, there’s no need to worry. If it was accepted for travelbefore, it will be acceptable for travel now, but with the same uncertainty thatif the flight is full it may eventually have to travel in the hold,” saidWindmuller.

文章很长,这里就简单摘录,重点讲一下内容:

这个“Cabin OK”只是一个指导,不是一个标准;它不代替航空公司最大限制尺寸;它只是一个最佳尺寸,不是最大尺寸;对于旅客来说,它可以很大程度上确定你的行李可以放置在客舱;它实施后也不需要旅客重新购置手提箱;它不是航空公司创收计划;它是一个给空勤和地勤工作人员的标识;它的所有目的是为了旅客最大可能的保证。

WindMull说:“对于没有使用“Cabin OK”行李箱的旅客来说也无需担心,如果以前乘飞机的时候可以使用,现在也是可以继续用的,只是说如果飞机客舱行李满了,有可能你的行李会被要求放在货仓而已!”

没有结束的结束

迫于对此事件进一步误解误读,IATA不得不在6月17号宣布暂停发出这个倡议!

Date: 17 June 2015

IATA Pauses Rollout of Cabin OK to ReassessInitiative

Geneva - The International Air TransportAssociation (IATA) announced that it was pausing the rollout of its Cabin OKinitiative and beginning a comprehensive reassessment in light of concernsexpressed, primarily in North America. This will include further engagementwith program participants, the IATA membership, and key stakeholders.

这个事情就这样搁置了?!

所以请大家不要相信一些媒体误解误读,否则好好一件事情就这样,搁置了!
