    Sadly, much of the flying public does not clue in that “someone” has to hoist their heavy suitcases into the cargo hold. These tips should be printed up and on display everywhere luggage is sold, and even posted as reading material by the carousel at the airport – for future reference.

    Curtesy to fellow human beings just doing their jobs and try to imagine what they go through. Common sense is not always common.

    I never thought of a couple travelling together to have matching bags. It may also come in handy to show at the lost and found – “THIS is exactly what it looks like” when your bag went missing but your partner’s did not and safely arrived as expected.
