Here’s What Happens After You Check Your Luggage

Checking your luggage can be a stressful process: marking everything with tags, making sure that bottle of booze is wrapped up well enough in the 20 shirts you brought as “backup” but will never wear, crossing your fingers that you don’t have to pay extra to check more than one bag, and the list goes on. Sure, that’s stressful enough, but what may be even worse is not knowing what happens between the time you let go of your cargo and when it gets loaded onto your plane.
