Good news- T5 Baggage system being replaced

  1. Hi,

    My sources tell me that the T5 baggage system is to replaced. BA have had enough of their current supplier, after the the T5 opening shambles.

    So a new system will be in place, which hopefully will work better than the last one.

    Expect to see the same system in T3 as well

    What good news! People keep telling me how wonderful the T5 system is (serious BA apologists and vendors for the baggage system) but all those weight sensores don't work, and the offloading is substandard. Not too much to recommend it, IMO.

    Great!! Although my experience with baggage in T5 has been decent and T3 has been very punctual!

    In recent statistics on baggage handling BA is much improved, I believed that T5 BHS had a role in this. Was I wrong ?

    Totally incorrect.

    The T5 baggage system is one of the most advanced in the world, and is most certainly not yet in need of replacement.

  6. The software that runs the system is not the most advanced in the world. BA have had enough of it. And are also keen for T3 to adopt the same system.

    Ah! The software is being changed.

    When you said system I thought you meant the hardware.

    I've been quite impressed by baggage arrivals. I've found that from the B/C gates, the baggage beats me (and i get through immigration quickly via IRIS). Considering the size of the airport, 15 mins gate-to-curb (with checked baggage) is pretty good.
