noun /ˈləgij/

Suitcases or other bags in which to pack personal belongings for traveling

Synonyms : (adjective) baggage

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word luggage enters printed English in 1596. The word derived from the verb “lug,” as in “that which needs to be lugged about.”

Luggage is more or less the same concept as “baggage“, but is normally used in relation to the personal luggage of a specific person or persons (e.g. I have lost my luggage, he has prepared his luggage, but not normally I have lost my baggage, he has prepared his baggage). The modern traveler can be expected to have packages containing clothing, toiletries, small possessions, trip necessities, and on the return-trip, souvenirs.

Luggage has changed over time. Historically the most common types of luggage were Chests or trunks made of wood or other heavy materials. These would be shipped by professional movers. Since the Second World War smaller and more lightweight suitcases and bags that can be carried by an individual have become the main form of luggage.

With more and more passengers traveling by air the baggage handlers have seen an increase of passengers using the airline transport industry’s ATA 300 Specifications for baggage designs acceptable for air transport, including both ‘hand luggage’ and ‘hold luggage’.
