Air travel this summer has been plagued by delays across the world. Canadian airlines and airports have been particularly affected by staffing issues after the pandemic, making for long lines and lost luggage.
However, in Australia, the airline Qantas has come up with one way of trying to solve the problem.
The company is now asking its senior executives to temporarily become baggage handlers.
Staff who accept the temporary arrangement will be expected to sort and scan bags, load them into aircraft and drive them around the airport, among other responsibilities.
They will not be expected to carry out their ground handler role on top of their full-time positions.
