Baggage handlers caught on video tossing bags

Baggage handlers caught on video tossing bags

What happens to your luggage when it is out of your sight can hurt you. If you’ve ever wondered about the dings to a suitcase that you picked up from the airport luggage carousel, this might explain it.

From USA Today:

Two Air Canada baggage handlers apparently will lose their jobs after a passenger captured video of them dropping fliers’ bags off a 20-foot boarding platform while readying a flight for departure.


Passenger Dwayne Stewart captured the video at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport while waiting for his Vancouver-bound flight to push back from the gate.

The article includes comments from viewers of the video, which Stewart posted on YouTube. One of them is quoted as saying:

I don’t see what the big deal is. I mean they put padding in there to make sure there wasn’t a hard impact … Why should these guys have to walk ALL the way down those stairs with a bag of luggage, just to go ALL the way back up and then go back down again, over and over?

What are the chances this guy is not a baggage handler?
