Is This The Fix For Airlines To Transport Luggage Between The Plane & The Terminal Faster?

Most of us know the drill. You plane lands and takes however long to get to your gate. You go to baggage claim (maybe with a stop at customs, if you’re coming in from a different country) and then you wait. And wait. And…wait.

Or it’s 18 minutes past takeoff and the final cart of luggage has finally arrived to be loaded onto the plane.

It takes SO flippin’ long for your luggage to go from the terminal to the plane (or vice versa). I realize there are probably a bajillion reasons why there’s almost always a delay – weather, tarmac traffic, etc. But British Airways is taking the lead in trying to fix that problem with a new system that will hopefully get your stuff to where it’s supposed to be faster and more efficiently. It should also get your luggage to your plane faster too, to help with on-time takeoffs.

The Little-Known Airport On Walt Disney World Property

If Auckland Airport Can Do This, Why Can’t Our Airports Do It, Too?

Auckland International Airport (AKL) is the largest and busiest airport in New Zealand. It serviced over 21,000,000 passengers by their March 2019 year end, which puts it approximately on par with Phoenix (PHX), Houston (IAH) and and Miami (MIA) International Airports in the United States (latest data for them is Dec. 2018). Definitely nothing to sneeze at.

Like many airports, ALK has had an app for several years but it was pretty basic – just flight and parking information. Well, they’ve just done a refresh of the app and I now have airport app envy. Look at everything it can do…
