Delta - Your Bag's Journey

Ever wonder what happens to your bag after it gets checked in at the airport?  Delta recently released a video that shows what happens to a checked bag once it goes behind those black rubber flaps.  They put together a piece of luggage with six built in cameras that then traveled on a flight from Atlanta to New York City.  Obviously this bag got special treatment (there's no baggage handler rifling through the luggage to nick your electronics or chucking it haphazardly onto the baggage cart), but overall a very cool behind the scenes look at what a bag goes through to get from point A to point B.

The video (which has racked up about a million views in two weeks) is also an effective way to promote the new Delta mobile app that allows flyers track their checked baggage.
