As if there isn’t enough to worry about when handing your luggage in when travelling, now a video of what might be happening to your valuables has us all cringing.

Footage of a Hawaiian Airlines baggage handler roughly tossing passengers’ bags onto a conveyor belt has sparked outrage online.

The video was reportedly filmed at Honolulu airport, before it was posted on Twitter, causing travellers everywhere to condemn the careless actions.

“The mystery of all my broken suitcases is solved — this is the ground crew at Honolulu loading up a @HawaiianAir flight to Phoenix,” the tweet alongside the video read.

“This makes my blood boil,” was just one of the many responses.
