I just have some department store AT pieces. They do the job and I can check them if need be when I fly. However, when I do, I can cram a week's worth of business dress clothes into my carry-on, which happens to be about as big as they'll let you bring on. There's no way I'm going to pay an airline $50 to destroy my bag for me unless I have no choice. Back when it was free, I was willing to take chances, which is why I have the cheaper stuff to begin with.
I love aviation, but I hate airlines. Southwest seems to be the only one that's close to getting it right. Even if I didn't have an itch to fly, I'd still consider getting my pilot's license just to avoid putting up with their BS. Besides, when you fly yourself, you can use that nice vintage leather luggage without worrying about some dude dragging it across the tarmac.
