Why that wheel is broken on your luggage


No respect

Lazy work habits

I refuse to take my best luggage because I really need those wheels.. My DH might not mind carrying the bags but I do.

Interestingly last cruise (Dec 15 2017) after parking the car on the terminal roof in NY went down to check in the bags. Could not see a porter and the lady directing people looked at the back and said i could carry / roll it though if i wished ... so I did. Saves the wheels. When we got on board went straight to the room even though we knew they were not ready and asked our stewart if I could throw it into the closet. No problem he says. Got himself a day one tip for that one ;)

That sure explains what happened to mine last spring, but WestJet gave me a great replacement amount and I was able to replace my suitcase in the Toronto airport at a Samsonite luggage shop. They also gave me extra travel miles to compensate for the “inconvenience”.

That explains a lot. Sad really.

Never lost a wheel, but that does explain the broken bottle wrapped in bubble wrap, boxed, and nestled snuggly in amongst my clothes last flight. Surprised

Another good reason to pack light enough for carry on only.

Yep! Here’s another one. Years ago my airline used to deliver fish regularly from up north to this area. Those boxes always leaked “fish juices”. The bags laying on the cargo pit floor would get soaked in those juices. I’m sure there are still airlines that deliver large quantities of fish.

Plenty of other things I’ve seen with luggage over the years.
