bag drag
 n.— «Sometimes if you have a 20 or 30 minute turn in a city, somebody on the crew will make a food run to the terminal. If you’re lucky, you stay with one plane all day. If not, you’ve got a bag drag from one end of the airport to another.» —“The work we do” by Jeanne Claire van Ryzin, Becky Howell Austin American-Statesman Aug. 31, 2000.
