I’ve stated it earlier than and I’ll say it now once more.
In my ebook, there are solely two sorts of airline baggage — carry-on and misplaced.
However in the event you’re on trip, likelihood is you don’t have a alternative, and you might want to test a bag or two.
And this summer season, airline workers shortages aren’t simply with pilots however with baggage handlers as properly.
So it’s the way you pack your checked baggage that may usually make the distinction.
First, take a photograph of your bag earlier than you allow. That gives you a visible report to share in case your bag is lacking. Then, break up your clothes between two baggage. That method if one will get misplaced, you continue to have one thing to put on.
And third, don’t assume your bag was even loaded onto the aircraft.
Earlier than you board — on the gate — present your barcoded bag tags to the agent.
Most baggage are scanned when they’re loaded, and the agent can then affirm — earlier than you ever stroll down that jetway — that your baggage are on the aircraft.
