Reckless Baggage Handlers Filmed Tossing 'Beloved' Luggage At Airport

Another day and another story about airport staff launching passengers' bags from the plane.

We get it, people can get a little cranky at work, but generally they don't start throwing things around the office.

A video, taken by a passenger on a plane at Hong Kong International Airport, shows handlers dragging bags from the plane's conveyor belt and throwing them onto a trolley behind.

By now the footage, taken last month, is hardly shocking but it shows it is clearly a bigger problem than we first thought.

Stunned onlooker Marcela Fernanda Solis Walker filmed the staff and shared the clip on her Facebook page.

She wrote: "This the way that our beloved luggage is treated!! I made the video this morning once my flight landed in #hongkongairport the flight was CX5617 xiamen- hongkong departure 7:40am 27 of September . Landed on Hong Kong Airport around 9:00 am."

Ms Solis Walker told the South China Morning Post she just wanted to highlight the problem.

She told the paper: "I don't have any intention to make any trouble to the workers.

"I only wanted other people to be aware of the situation."

According to reports in the South China Morning Post, Ms Solis Walker has written to Hong Kong Airport Services (HAS), the company she believes to be the employer of the men in the video.

A spokesperson for HAS told the Post they were aware of the incident.

They said: "We sincerely apologise to the passengers of our customer airlines in this particular incident."

It's been a tough time for baggage handlers, they just can't seem to catch a break; some pesky passenger is always out there snapping them at their worst.

Just last month, handlers at Manchester Airport were videoed chucking bags from a Ryanair flight that had landed from Malaga.

The footage was also taken by a passenger, who shared the clip on social media.

And things didn't seem to get any better for the airport, as yet another passenger filmed carousel chaos as luggage piled up causing a jam in the arrivals terminal last week.
