IamA Baggage handler at a major US airport, I handle your luggage and more! AMA!
I've been working at an airport for a few years now and enough people inquire about my job that now I'm doing an ama. A few of these have been done before but no two people on the ramp have the same perspective, I'm sure. Sent proof to the mods.
I do eventually have to sleep, so ask away!
Edit: This was so much more fun that I thought it could be. Thanks for all the great questions, but it is now 8:30am local time here, and I have not slept. I want to high five you all, or at least give you all some gold star stickers. Peace out.
Edit 2: woke up to gold, thanks! From now on I think I'm just gonna go around saying "Baggage handler here! Something something carousels."
