Airline Passenger Films How Terribly They Handle Luggage, And It Escalates Quickly

If you have ever retrieved a damaged suitcase after a flight, this video might shed some light on what might have happened to it. Vanessa Marsh shared a recording on Twitter, showing every plane passenger’s worst nightmare – an airport employee throwing their luggage like a piece of trash instead of letting it gently slide down the chute. The woman throws them down, not even mildly concerned about breaking passengers’ belongings.

After Vanessa’s video gained more than 40k views, Hawaiian Airlines posted a reply, promising to look further into the situation. However, the people were still outraged, demanding they fire the employee. Scroll down to check out the actions that ignited the whole thing and let us know what you think the company should do about the worker in question.

You would think after all these years the whole carry-on nonsense would be stream lined and improved. It is so stupid to do the one piece at a time. Either way if that was my employee showing such indifference she would be canned.

Why blame the worker? IT's the airline that doesn't give a fuck about your luggage. If they did, they'd invest is a moving ramp (a conveyor belt) to lower the luggage down. Then the worker would PLACE the luggage at the top of the moving ramp and the luggage would ride the ramp down to the bottom. Is that what the Airline provides? No, so it's the airline who's to blame not the worker. My guess, if you gently set the luggage on the ramp at top, there's a change it would stick there. By inserting it farther down the ramp (where it's steeper) it has more momentum and there for, for sure, makes it down the ramp. You are sadly out of touch if you think any employee would gentle set the bag down and waif it down the ramp with a silk hanky. Bottom line, buy sturdy not designer luggage and pack like it's going to be thrown off the plane.

Not 1 robot to replace someone's job is being made without the intention of saving money for the employer. Whether someone does his job good or not is not taken into consideration.
