This Guy Places Luggage On The Conveyer Belt. Then Something Incredible Happens!

Checking in and handing off luggage to airline attendants is one of the first things people do when they get to the airport, unless they opt to carry it on the plane of course. We get to see the workers weigh our bags and slap a sticker on before they place them on a slow moving conveyor belt. If you’re lucky the airline allows you to check a bag for free, and if it weighs less than the limit you also avoid having to pay any extra fees.

In this day and age it seems that airlines charge customers just about every step of the way, whether it’s for snacks, early boarding privileges, blankets, and so on. The one area that they seem to be ever increasing charges is in the baggage realm, partly because they know they can get you there. After all, most people have to pack clothes and bring necessities for their trip with them!

Fast forward to arrival, when you’re standing at the baggage claim area anxiously awaiting the sight of your luggage. Once you find it you can breathe a sigh of relief and be on your way. If it never comes you have to deal with the hassle of trying to track it down and sometimes it’s lost forever, which is depressing to even think about.

Many people wonder where bags get lost because it’s not like they are small and easy to misplace. Plus, if they’re clearly labeled then they should eventually make it to the destination, barring anyone actually stealing them. Once bags have been removed from an arriving plane, or checked in, where do they even go?

This video shows some incredibly insightful footage into the baggage handling process and it’s way more complex than I ever assumed or imagined. A 360-degree camera was attached to a checked suitcase at the Amsterdam Airport in Schiphol, Netherlands, and then sent on it’s way.

The clip shows what a long, strange, automated journey bags have to go through. It may just shed some light, and offer a few clues, as to where and how bags become lost or misplaced. Plus, it helps to justify the rising fees associated with checking luggage. After all, you’re basically paying for your bags to go on several extended carnival rides!

Check it out because this is something you have to see for yourself. It’s eye opening, amazing, and if you haven’t yet learned anything new today, this is for you!
