Earlier this month, Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport produced a video from the point of view of checked luggage to show travelers where the items go after they drop them off. The airport’s website even has a 360° interactive feature in which passengers can drag their cursor across the screen and see the journey from any angle.

It’s weirdly thrilling to watch suitcases zoom through the airport underbelly, making the move from truck to various conveyer belts. But nothing’s perfect. After the airport shared the clip on Facebook, an airline passenger posted this comment: “36 hours later, our luggages are still stuck in this amazing airport. Thanks for that wonderful moment : no spare clothes, no soap, no shampoo, no toothbrush. It’s raining so we are totally wet and smelly. Plus, it’s really cold out there. But hey, thanks for that amaaaaazing way to take care of our luggages ! Keep it up guys.”
