Tony Lucking Debate: Who Carries the Bag

The Air Transport Group are holding the Tony Lucking Debate on the emerging options for passenger baggage on airlines from three different perspectives.

The aim of the debate is to explore some of the emerging
options around passenger baggage which include:
1) The airline strategy to sell ‘Cabin Bags Only’ tickets,
hence discouraging hold bags. However, how does this meet
customer expectations and manage the issue at boarding
due to increased cabin baggage? The reasons why ‘Cabin
Baggage Only’ is important for the passenger will also be
2) The Integrated Airport Solution to facilitate checking-in
hold bags downtown through association with for example,
the Air-Train provider. In this option, passengers do not have
to carry their bags. However, this raises the issue as to
how this aligns with airline/industry weight/size limits and
security implications.
3) From/to home or hotel service. Here the speaker will look
at how passenger bags can be transported to/from the
airport completely separately to the passenger and will also
weigh up the time and cost sensitivity of passengers for
such a service.
To help stimulate thinking we will also have two speakers
who will introduce more expansive thinking on how different
baggage services may impact terminal design and further
alternatives for the journey of the bag.
