    I like this idea. With TSA Pre check, the bag check process is now my longest waiting time. I dont like waiting, especially for people fumbling at the machines.

    Cruise lines have been doing this for years. The problem is getting the tag to stay on the bag with rough handling, etc. The bag tag holders are good I guess. When I print bag tags at home I use heavier paper which helps with stuff like this.

    I think anything that can be put in the consumer's hand to help expedite is a good thing to go with.

    I think they decided to create permanent tags and electric ink tags instead.

    There's always the handyman's secret weapon: duct tape. :D
