Marcelyn Posted January 21, 2016 Share Posted January 21, 2016 Have you ever noticed how people behave when they travel? We were on a plane recently and observed many people undo their seat belt (you can hear the click) as soon as the plane is on the ground but still moving toward the terminal. Then up they jump into the aisle preventing other passengers from reaching luggage and not offering help to elder people struggling to reach into those crowded airplane bins. Of course these people wait in the aisle several minutes until the pilot turns off engines, etc.and parks the aircraft. I see these same people waiting for luggage and standing so close to the carousel no one else can see approaching bags. I've never figured out how standing right next to the carousel is a good idea for everyone. Noticed one female who pushed people aside so she could stand close to the carousel, finally she saw and grabbed her small bag, turned to leave but others would not move so she was trapped while people reached over and around her for their luggage. Poor thing was wild eyed after minutes of this activity. There is one airport (maybe in Germany) where a yellow line on the airport floor marks how close passengers are allowed to stand while waiting for luggage. Everyone can spot their bag on the moving belt, step forward, take their possession, and leave. Pretty efficient method. Another scene in Africa was interesting. All luggage was taken off the airplane and dumped in one big pile. Seemed my lonely bag was always at the bottom of the heap. For my safety, I stood back and waited until other passengers had picked through this display. Funny how my luggage was never taken by mistake. Just my observations of airport behavior.
