How our luggage is loaded on the plane, perhaps this is a question few people really think about. However, the truth is, the process of packing suitcases and luggage of hundreds of people into the cabin is both complicated and interesting.
The best answer can be found in the video posted by TikToker @djsugue, a former employee at Vancouver International Airport. The clip quickly went viral because of the images we rarely get to see with our own eyes.
“This is how your luggage is stacked in the plane”, @djsugue captioned his video. Accordingly, it can be seen that, first, the airport staff spread an escalator, which was placed horizontally into the cargo hold.
Then, the staff standing inside began to pick up the suitcases one by one and then arrange them in the most clever and smartest rows to ensure the area and stability. This person is required to be quick and obviously in good health. This job of loading aircraft luggage is also not common for workers.
