Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Heidi, who says:
“I was told by a ramp worker at Delta that ties/strings/bows/yarn and hanging items to mark your luggage is a BAD idea as sometimes it gets caught in the ramp and the process has to stop moving to untangle the luggage. He said to just mark your initials in magic marker on your baggage piece itself. Decorate with paint or something. Just don’t hang things from the straps.”
I know that old ties have helped my sister identify baggage before. I can’t say for sure that all ramp workers feel this way, but I think this is worth sharing. Thanks, Heidi!
