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.
Otherwise, I try to carry on any items I really care about because I don’t want them getting lost, stolen, or broken. I highly doubt my bottle of Scottish whiskey would have survived these baggage handlers!
