Luggage tags....ummmm

Just a thought...As SE can check in four bags, why do we only get 2 luggage tags..

I check baggage on maybe 5% of flights I take. I don't think I've ever in my life checked more than one bag. 2 tags is more than enough for me.

I hate having to check-in luggage, but I always think that my bag is too big to fit in the overheard bins, so I end up checking 1 bag.

The worst part of checking in luggage is the loooonnnngggggggg wait times for luggage to show up at YYZ - T2.

What you can do about checking bags is invest in 2 bags that fit the carryon requirements. I did this 2 years ago....and my suits come out better than they did in the expensive leather garment bag. These 2 bags are more efficient packers than you would ever believe........Boy, I still have problems with my "i"s before "e"s, or is it "e"s before "i"s except after "c".

There are other problems with carry on as well. The stuff I take with me would never get through security. Therefore, I have no choice. I must check at least one bag, sometimes two.

Good point.

I normally have so much electrical stuff it would have that machine going crazy.

Plus i do hate those people who hold up boarding with those huge bags....

And if you have a aisle seat, getting your shoulder beaten....

If only the baggage handlers could think!

So whats the solution..?

Talk about luggage... no aiport I've been in can beat the efficiency of HKG. Most of the time, by the time I go through customs, my bags are already on the belt and that's about 10 mins after I am off the plane.
