Check out this short video from 20/20 entitled, “Confessions of a Baggage Handler”. After you watch this, you’ll think twice about what you check in and how you check in your bags.
- The baggage handlers don’t care about your bags!
- If your bag has been tagged “priority”, you may be targeted for theft.
- Don’t hand valuables to the baggage handlers – this includes leaving valuables out of your checked bags and taking out the valuables if you have to check your carry-ons.
- Tips to ensure your checked bags are handled better: Buy a four-wheeler, make sure your bag is sturdy, don’t check in too early, and invest in a tracking device
