Traveler Review of Early Bag Check

Early Bag Check at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, operated by Bags Inc.

We have been getting a lot of media buzz about the Early Bag Check offered at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport by Bags Inc. What we enjoy even more than good media coverage though is positive feedback from the travelers who use our service. This comment is just in from our friends at Phoenix Sky Harbor. Thank you, Michelle!

I just tried the new service in the east economy parking lot and love it! I told all my friends (via Facebook) how great it is. Also, the gentleman who took my bag and checked me in was so friendly and explained everything with a great smile. Thank you!!
