1. There is an application that tells you how many people are at the Security Arch Control.
The My TSA mobile application lets you see in real time how much queue there is to pass the security arch. It can be very useful to calculate times and avoid that the registration of your suitcase makes you miss flights.
2. About 4% of the bags that are reported as “lost” are not recovered
Cabin suitcases are lost much less or almost nothing than suitcases that go in the hold. This is where there is minimal risk of loss. Especially in the suitcases that fly to Asia or vice versa, which is the area of the world that loses the most. Well, of those that are reported as “lost suitcase” only 4% lose their trail, the rest are recovered.
3. The myth that if I check-in from the last (dropp-off) my suitcase will come out of the first
There is a belief (false false) that if you check your suitcase from the last, that suitcase remains so accessible in the hold that it leaves the first through the Baggage belt.
Fake! It all depends on the internal processes of the airport, the changes and relocations of luggage from the airline’s “Handling” company, the number of wagons that the truck has that moves the luggage through the internal routes of the airport, etc …
There are so many variables that it is impossible to know in what position your suitcase will be when you enter or leave the plane.
4. Hong Kong airport and its Golf course and Munich and its Surf lessons.
Yes, as you hear it. In Munich you can give Surf lessons at the airport itself (it is not always available, but they do many editions of this event).
And in Hong Kong they have a golf course, ale, there you have them.
We assure you that our cabin luggage does not fit a surf board, but hey, everything will work.
5. Try not to exchange currency at airports, they usually have the worst exchange rate
For an emergency they are very good, but you pay for that emergency. The best thing is to use changes in your usual bank (physical office) or start using “Revolut” style cards that are designed to pay during the trip without the exchange fees making the payment more expensive.
It’s much safer
Have you ever had your luggage lost during transit around the airport? If not, then you have been lucky. The idea of arriving at your destination just to find that you haven’t got your luggage is not a great one.
That is why hand luggage is a great idea. By only having Cabin luggage you will have your bag with you at all times, you won’t have to worry about it being sent to some random place elsewhere in the world and it won’t be at risk of theft or damage either.
This means that both you and your luggage will arrive at your destination together and in one piece.
It is cheaper
The charges applied to checking in luggage onto your flight can be costly. In fact, you may not realise it, but it can even be as much as £160! When you add that into the other fees or costs associated with your holiday it isn’t great.
Most airlines include hand luggage costs in their flight tickets, which means if you carry on hand luggage only, then you will be avoiding any additional charges. Leaving you with a little bit more spending money!
Less stress for you
Best of all, only having hand luggage for your flight is much less stressful for you. You will have your bag with you at all times, know that it can’t get lost and avoid some of the queues too. All things that are sure to get you in the holiday mood, or make your return home a little bit easier.
