Depends where you are landing. Rubbish in China/Hong Kong. Having landed at these 2 areas more then 30 times in the last year. It's very much a miss for me. On NZ,QF,SQ,TG,GA. I don't think it is an airline problem.

Hit and miss, i believe it has to do with the airport you have arrived in. In Changi it always works however when i get back to Sydney its a free for all, they come out mixed, sometimes mines near the end and ive travelled F. I reckon its all down to whoever runs the baggage handling.

Normally mine come in the first half, if not first. On Air NZ Premium with Platinum Velocity they have always been in the first batch among other priority bags at SFO. A few months ago I flew Business VA to Perth and my bag was the absolute last, but then again they'd ripped the priority flag off it...

Regardless of wether or not I'm flying Business, my bag will always be last.

How does Changi do it? Arrived last night on a Singapore flight into terminal 3. Did not stop from gate to immigration to carousel. No queues anywhere, maybe 10 minutes from gate to baggage. Bags were waiting for us.

It usually works for me on Domestic Flights 99% of the time with both Qantas and Virgin. International is very hot or miss though. Literally first bag off both ways flying SYD-SIN, SYD-YVR and SYD-PVG but towards the middle to back on my flights to LAX, JFK and DFW. I find the orange flag opposed to having it just printed on the tag tends to help your chances

yes it lets the baggage handlers know you have money and which bag to target

Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
Do 'priority' luggage tags make a difference?
