What You Can Learn From Baggage Claim
Baggage claim has a lot to teach us:

Welcome to the official Flight 24 blog!
Our mission here at Flight 24 is to make sure you can always collect your luggage from the baggage claim. We realize that when it comes down to it, this is what matters most about flying. Sure, having a flight delay sucks, but if you can grab your bag after the flight and go on with your life, that’s what’s important.
On this blog we will share with you stories of people who have had their luggage lost, as well as tips and tricks for making sure it doesn’t happen to you.

Please collect your luggage from Baggage Claim in the airport you landed at.**
Baggage claim is the place where you pick up your luggage after a flight. Baggage claim is an area of the airport. You can go to baggage claim after you get off of your plane. The airport will send your luggage to baggage claim after you check it at the ticket counter.
Sometimes there are long lines at baggage claim. It can take a long time for your luggage to get to baggage claim. You might be waiting for a long time at baggage claim before you see your luggage on the conveyor belt.
After you arrive at baggage claim, find a carousel and wait for your luggage there. A carousel is like a conveyor belt, but it goes around and around in a circle. Sometimes if there are lots of people at baggage claim, there will be more than one carousel with luggage on it. If this is the case, listen carefully to the public address system, so that you know which carousel has your luggage on it. Then go stand near that carousel and wait for your luggage to come around on it.
Your luggage will come out onto the carousel in no particular order, so sometimes all of the people who have been waiting by the wrong carousel will run across the room to get their luggage when they see
You’ve had an amazing flight. You took your seat in the aircraft, sat back, and enjoyed the smooth ride up to cruising altitude. The flight attendants brought you drinks and a warm meal and even offered you a blanket. You reclined your seat and slept for a few hours.
Now you’ve arrived at your destination airport and have successfully collected your carry-on luggage from the overhead bins above your seat. Congratulations!
The next step is to collect the larger pieces of luggage that the airline checked for you before you boarded the aircraft. These items will be available at Baggage Claim, which is usually located near the airport’s main entrance.
Airlines try very hard to return checked luggage with their owners as soon as possible after arrival at an airport, but sometimes there are delays. If you do not immediately see your bags on the conveyor belt, please check with one of our airline representatives stationed around Baggage Claim.
Exiting the plane, I noticed a large crowd of people around baggage claim. The sign overhead said “Baggage Claim” so I assumed that was where I needed to go next.
While I was in line to collect my luggage, I noticed a sign for the bathroom. The bathroom seemed like it would be the perfect place to collect my luggage. After all, what better place could there possibly be to put your luggage?
Unfortunately, there were no showers in the bathroom. A shower would have been perfect for washing off my luggage and any other personal items I may have brought with me on my flight. As it is, I will probably just keep my luggage in my apartment for a few days until it’s clean enough for me to use again (or until I get tired of living with dirty luggage and buy some new ones).
If only there had been a sign in the bathroom that said “Luggage Claim”.
