Stand Away from the Baggage Carousel
I don’t know about you, but one of my pet peeves when I check a bag (which is very rarely) is when everyone rushes to baggage claim and hovers over the carousel so you can’t see or grab your bag when it finally comes out (if it even does come out). Just stand clear of the carousel and approach it when you see your bag, please.
P.S. I love that carousels in many Asian airports have a line about three feet away reminding people to stand back (seen above, in Bangkok). I wish the U.S. would do the same.
