A video shot by Southwest Airlines passenger Chase Platon at San Jose Mineta International Airport in California on Tuesday appears to show baggage handlers tossing a piece of luggage around, apparently for fun.

You should trust these handlers as far as they can throw your luggage.

On the busiest traveling weekend of the year, these airline employees threw all trust for baggage procedures out the window.

Baggage handlers in Alaska Airlines uniforms were caught tossing bags around in a bizarre competition and cheering each other on.

The clip, recorded on Tuesday by Chase Platon at San Jose Mineta International Airport, showed the employees lining up and hurling the luggage to see how far they could throw it. One employee at the Southwest Airlines terminal gate was applauding during the contest.

While the clip is only 50-seconds long, the bag-chucking competition lasted 30 minutes, Platon told NBC Bay Area.

He said he had enough of watching the inconsiderate game, and went over to confront the Alaska Airlines employees. But even the confrontation didn’t end the competition.

“They tried to justify it by saying it may not be a customer bag,” Platon said.

Alaska Airlines apologized for the fumbling fiasco, but clarified the bag did not belong to any customers.

“Regrettably, our employees were tossing a company rollaboard bag that was filled with magazines as part of an employee game,” the airline said in a statement. “This game should not have been played at the airport.”
