    I hear about an apology and I hear about suspension of the employees. But is there any news on what they will do about it in the future to avoid this problem again?

    Do they actually want the baggage handler to bring every single baggage down one by one?

    I'm surprised the Jetways don't have chutes to slide bags down... :eek:

    Me too, surely they could and should have a better system in place than throwing around bags. :mad:

    It seems like baggage handlers are always expending extra energy anyway by lifting bags nearly over their head to throw them onto the belt to be loaded. The Menzies folks at T6 in LAX are some of the worst offenders I've seen, although nothing as bad as in the video.

    It really is quite shocking. I'm used to the ramp guys handling luggage very gently and gingerly.
