Flying from one place to another is all excitement and anticipation except for two reservations, the fear of not reaching the destination on time and the fear of losing the baggage. While the baggage rarely gets lost, it does however gets mixed up or delayed often. The latter happens due to various reasons. The most common ones are:
While storms can be forecasted ahead of time, a flight that is already in the air can hardly do anything about it. However, once it lands, everyone is ordered inside at once for safety reasons. When the crew is unable to work until after the storm has subsided, it results in the baggage reaching late to the passengers after the flight has landed.
The Expanse of the Airport
Bigger is not always better especially when it comes to airport. When the airport is vast and expansive, it takes more time for the crew to get the baggage to the baggage claim and ends up delaying the passengers for several extra hours.
Larger the plane, larger the number of commuters and even larger the amount of baggage left to transport. So if a flight is filled to the brim, then chances are it will take more time to get the baggage then it would have taken when the flight was almost empty.
Most times even humongous airports are able to deliver the baggage on time because of their state of the art equipments and efficient baggage transfer arrangements. Airport with no conveyor belts, slow security checks and outdated systems end up delaying their baggage very often.
So basically if you’re flying to a very high trafficking place or a very remote one, you can expect a delay in your baggage transfer. Also, huge airports and sudden weather change can quite effectively mess up your schedule.
