They are normally unloaded first. When you check them in the staff should label them as priority baggage so that they can be identified by the staff handling luggage. It doesn't always work, though. On one occasion on a flight from Brisbane to Singapore, my wife's bag did not appear - it had been sorted with bags going on to Dubai. Fortunately the EK staff were able to get it off the lane before it departed to Dubai. Priority is no guarantee of delivery, or even of prompt delivery. It is good when it works, though.
