We’ve shown you the secret to booking $45,000 in Business Class airfare for $540. We’ve taught you how to get free flights and earn frequent flier miles at the same time. And we’ve detailed strategies for booking that dream Hawaiian vacation for pennies on the dollar.
But one thing we haven’t figure out, is how to get baggage handlers to start caring about your luggage. Take a look at this video of these guys slamming luggage around at Hong Kong International Airport. Pretty crazy, huh?!
The video, taken by passenger Marcela Fernanda Solis Walker, garnered over 5 million views after she posted it to her Facebook page. Not only has the video gone viral, but it has sparked outrage among travelers everywhere. And for very obvious reasons!
I can only think of one time where I packed something fragile in my checked luggage, and that was when I was bringing home a bottle of special whiskey from a trip to Scotland.
