God knows what your bag has to go through before it’s finally on the plane. It’s quite a long journey which starts right after you check in and wave your suitcase a goodbye.
Of course, It’s a journey you totally ignore. Have you ever asked yourself what really happens out there when baggage handlers load your bag and other people‘s bags into the airplane?
#1 – Choose a bag with wheels
If you are worried about the safety of your bag and of the stuff you have inside it, then you’d better save yourself a headache and choose a bag with wheels instead.
A former baggage handler said that the process of loading bags into the airplane is a lot more comfortable and easy when the bags have four wheels. This way it can be pushed down the length of the plane. Therefore, stay safe from any damage.
Otherwise, it would be automatically thrown. This doesn’t mean that the baggage handler has bad intentions and really enjoys harming your bag. No not at all, it is just the only way they can guarantee your flight out on time.
So, make it easy for you, your bag, and for the baggage handler!
#2 – Avoid choosing a bag with flimsy attachments
What else do you expect when you have a bag that is over 50 pounds and has a flimsy handle but to be damaged. Strong Handles and four wheels are two things that can guarantee the safety of your bag when in the airport.
Aware of the long road that your bag has to take, you must completely avoid bags with thin and weak handles as they are most likely to break.
A baggage handler named Aaron William said that sometimes it happens that not only the wheels of the bag break as it accidentally hit the edge of the container door but also the handles break as well while he tries to lift the bag from the conveyer belt.
