A viral video has captured the moment a number of suitcases are removed from a plane at an airport in japan.
Whilst the airport destination remains unknown, a female baggage handler is tasked with sorting them out.
The suitcases leave the carousel and are put onto the moving conveyor belt.
She can then be seen polishing the bags with a cloth and checking them for marks.
She also makes sure they are safely on the conveyor belt after they have been cleaned by adjusting them.
Many have commented online about their own experience travelling in Japan.
One wrote on Facebook: “I went to Japan in January and was amazed when the tiny little women on the check-in desk for an internal flight tried to take my large snowboard bag around to the oversize baggage desk, then when I insisted on taking it myself one of them ran ahead to show me the way.”
Another remarked: “She’s probably wiping the condensation off of the plastic cases (she skips some of the others).”
Some rather cynical users thought it was for a much more nefarious reason.
One wrote: “Wiping of fthe finger prints.”
It is a stark difference compared to how they are handled in the UK, following a shocking video from last year that emerged.
A video filmed at Luton Airport showed baggage handlers throwing luggage violently onto a car.
It sparked outrage as the luggage was also seen being kicked and dropped onto the tarmac.
The airport then released a statement, commenting: ““We are working with the ground handling company responsible who have confirmed that an investigation is underway and that they will take any necessary action to prevent such behaviour happening again.”
An EasyJet spokesperson added: “We have been assured by our provider that this is being investigated.”
How can passengers ensure they get their suitcase back first when it being unloaded?
An online hack revealed how to avoid getting a piece of luggage thrown about when being transported as well as getting it back first.
Forum user Raqhav wrote that a fragile sticker has two benefits.
He wrote: “A fragile tag is meant to be put on luggage which are to be handled carefully: items made of glass, pottery, ceramic or any other easily breakable item.
“The guys transporting your luggage will take extra care so as to not break your item. Most often the fragile tagged luggage come on to the belt first.”
