The number of bags mishandled while transferring to a connecting flight is high. Bags at-risk of missing their connections can be processed faster; however, identifying such bags at-risk is still done by simple business rules. This work researches a general model of baggage transfer process and proposes a complex prediction model for identifying the bags at-risk. Our prediction model is compared to the current rule based method and a benchmark using logistic regression. The results show that our model offers an increase in accuracy coupled with a marked increase in precision and recall when identifying bags that are transferred unsuccessfully.
