What REALLY happens to your luggage at the airport?

You walk up to the check-in counter, hand over your ID, put your suitcase onto the scale – where it hopefully is just the right weight and size – you get your luggage receipt, and your bag disappears.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wondered what exactly happens to it from the time it vanishes down that conveyor belt.

Obviously, every airport is different because of size, equipment, etc., but essentially the same thing happens everywhere. Your bag magically appears at the carousel at your destination. Or, it doesn’t, and then you have to deal with the process of getting your lost suitcase back. But, we won’t think about that right now.

This is what happens at Heathrow airport near London, England.
