From the bus/car park you pick up your plethora of bags and bosh them on a trolley. You take the trolley like a drunk driver as it snakes towards check in where you hand your party’s bags over. you then need to dump the trolley somewhere, inevitably hygiene services usually get lumbered with herding these metal sheep back to the trolley parks.
On the other side in reclaim the same in reverse, you grab a trolley and wait for your bags to appear, plonk them on the trolley and off you go in the same drunken-trolley manner to the car park/bus stop. Again you see some thoughtless person dump their trolley in an empty car parking bay, feeling smug you return yours to the trolley bay.
It’s worth noting that passengers travelling alone or just with a companion are less likely to use a trolley. I understand the game is about to come out of internal testing and into our eager hands and don’t expect this feature to be implemented at all but I thought it might be a good idea for the long run.
-Trolley bays, at reclaim, at check in, in the car park/bus stop.
-Groups use trolleys typically (random modifier that increases the chance of using one as more pax are in the group?).
-Some pax put them in the bays, others just dump them in a corner.
-Staff required to round up the trolleys (at the airport i work, it’s hygiene services landside, security airside).
I can’t believe this hasn’t been suggested before, maybe it has but I’ve used the search function,
