Focus: Why Airlines Are Urging Travelers to Pack Smarter
4 months ago Comments Off on Focus: Why Airlines Are Urging Travelers to Pack Smarter
With around 60 million passengers travelling through the United States’ busiest airports LAX and ATL each year you can guess that there is a lot of baggage to check. Each airline has their own policy on how heavy your bag can be and what you’re allowed to carry on, but they all have to follow the same airport rules of baggage checking. Each and every bag that goes onto the plane has to be screened by machinery. Bags get flagged up as suspicious for a variety of reasons and these have to be checked for safety before being put in the hold. Airlines are urging passengers to pack more efficiently to make their jobs easier when checking bags that have been flagged up during the screening process. Passengers are also advised to check what can be taken on a plane before shoving it in their suitcase.
