comment Same sex marriage in the UK for foreigners on vacation
@MeNoTalk marriage is not off topic if you plan to travel somewhere so you can get married there - eg travel.stackexchange.com/questions/17493/… - but this question isn't clear whether that's what's being asked or not.

comment Send 1 overweight suitcase instead of 2 underweight?
even if they don't get fined, they may have a different procedure, such as requiring two handlers to work together, or a handler to wear a back support, etc. Heavy bags are tagged HEAVY so that everyone knows to treat them carefully. Airlines are inconvenienced by heavy bags for sure.

comment Why must I lock the door of an aircraft lavatory before the light inside fully brightens?
@damryfbfnetsi not a big deal but I was expanding "to another passenger on the outside" to also include crew and passengers further away than just the other side of the door, and including a safety reason (evacuations etc) on behalf of the crew as well as a privacy reason.

In addition to privacy concerns, locking the door lets the crew know someone is inside (they may need to know in an emergency) and activates indicators that will save someone else walking all the way up the aisle only to find it occupied.
