Oh the things I see when I’m at work! When you travel and check a bag, you should never over stuff your bag. I have seen so many bags that tear or burst open because the passenger has packed it too full.
This bag had a “heavy” tag on it (a heavy bag weighs more than 50 pounds for most airlines) and it literally was bursting at the seams. There is no reason to pack your bag this full.
You get charged extra when you have a heavy bag so you may as well check two bags and save yourself the frustration of having a busted bag on the carousel.
