There are technically two different types of priority tags if you're counting the LAA and LUS tags as different, but they both serve the exact same function.

^ At least, they're supposed to be. Ideally, priority tagged baggage should be the last to be loaded so it's the first off, as the LGA ground crew mentioned earlier did.

I've had several passengers request that I not place priority tags on their baggage. My coworkers have had the same happen to them and were confused, but from being on FlyerTalk and personal experience, I understood why they preferred not to have them.
