Holiday travels have begun with AAA saying this will be the most traveled Thanksgiving since 2005.  If you are flying somewhere you can expect a tougher journey as weather is expected to be a factor this year.  But you can ease the pain a little if you are checking in your luggage with this simple request. According to Travel and Leisure, asking the gate agent to place a fragile sticker on your bag will signal its VIP treatment and save you some time at baggage claim. Generally the fragile sticker are often loaded last on the airplane and unloaded first to the luggage carousel because f it’s fragile content.  Keep in mind, however, that you’ll need a new tag each time you fly. If it looks old, or was issued by a different airline, the crew might not pay attention to it. Also, consider upping your suitcase game, as quality, hard-shell bags look like they contain delicate or important items, along with the fragile sticker, will inspire baggage handlers to give them special treatment.
