Tis the season

Only three baggage carousels were operating at Midway on the night of December 28th. The damn things were spinning baggage from over 25 delayed flights. Checked luggage was piled everywhere - bags rolled off the overstacked carousels and onto the floor.


What a mess.


It took 90 minutes for my flight's baggage to appear, and a sudden stir in the crowd of kids wearing university sweatshirts and hats was the only indication of the correct carousel.

    Next time just carry on your luggage. I'm a baggage handler for an airline at MDW and the baggage handlers are idiots. I caught one of my fellow workers loading the wrong plane; I caught him minutes before the plane was going to leave.

    You know - maybe I should just take the bus. I mean if the whole endeavor takes 8 freaking hours and I have to carry on my luggage, why not?
