Is your checked or carry-on bag black? I am going to try and convince you to change that. Read on to find out why.
Working for an airline has taught me so many things that I am pleased to be able to share them with you. Something happened recently that I hope will push you to buy a different colored bag. Now don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against black. I mean, I love black. I AM black! But for a bag it’s the wrong choice.
A few days ago we had cancelled flights and the next flight wasn’t until the following day. Many passengers wanted their checked bags since they would be spending an unexpected night in Charlotte. I was working in the area where one of the jobs we do is look for passenger bags when they need them. The canceled bags were in a cart, there were probably 60 but many times there can be several carts filled with hundreds of bags. When we get baggage requests it says something like this:
name: Clark, Roni
bag description: large black roller bag
name: Smith, Calvin
bag description: Large green/white striped roller bag
