  • Dj Sugue shared a TikTok video showing how he stows luggage under a plane as a ramp agent.

  • Sugue has posted multiple TikTok videos showing his techniques for packing planes.

Dj Sugue is giving people an inside look at how he loads luggage underneath commercial planes as a ramp agent at the Vancouver International Airport in Canada.

On November 2, he posted a TikTok video showing what "100 bags look like inside the belly of a plane." The video had over 17 million views at the time of writing.

The video shows Sugue, who's been working as a ramp agent for four years, packing the bags together as if it were a game of Tetris. He told Insider that he has a system of putting the hard shell or heavy bags on the bottom and the lighter or soft shell ones on top.

Sugue added that depending on the size of the plane, it usually takes him anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to pack about 100 bags.

He told Insider that the second video he posted on November 6 was a personal best record, as he packed about 120 bags in 12 minutes.

"It's tough loading everything under 10 minutes, but I try my best," he said.

Since sharing the first video, Sugue has uploaded more clips showing off how he fits different bags and boxes in the undercarriage of various planes.

People in the comments shared how appreciative they are of people like Sugue, and even apologized for checking heavy bags in the past.

"Never packing my suitcase heavy again sorry for that man," TikTok user @beachesinCali commented.

Another TikTok user, @_TheRealSnoopy, wrote, "Damn, we sometimes forget how hard these airport workers work just for us to have a seamless experience when we're traveling."

Going viral on TikTok has been a welcome surprise for Sugue, who just got his job back over the summer after being laid off because of the pandemic.

"It's been crazy actually," he said of going viral, adding that he is going to show off other aspects of his job based on ideas his coworkers have given him.
