It's 6 years old (2005 appears at the end of the credits).
I think AMS has done quite of bit of further work on their baggage system since then. Here's a more recent IBM promotional video I posted in another thread a few days ago. IBM obviously involved in the system improvements. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GU3J5Yl2snA

Having worked the KLM flights in MEM with NW/DL I just love watching how it should be done. By this I mean the economy of scale at AMS vs MEM. We realy didn't appreciate the increased size of bags from the sub continent and Africa until them. We had several workers from AMS tell us about some kind of vacuum system that could be fitted over the bags and it would lift them instead of the operator and I was looking for it on this clip but did not see it. Was that a tall tale or did it exist? We were so jealous.
Less sarcasm and more thought equal better understanding
Martinair ceased flights to YYZ(based on the luggage label that prints out). They show his yellow suitcase being loaded onto an A320 and they show an A320 pushing back. MP used 767-300 aircraft on their AMS-YYZ-AMS flights. Yeah, I know...aviation mistakes in the press.

Quoting RobertNL070 (Reply 4): Yesterday I flew CMN - AMS with Royal Air Maroc. I had my bagage within 15 minutes of disembarking.
For about 25 % of my SVG-AMS-MRS trips or return (I do that quite often), my luggage get stranded in AMS. Despite the "SHOCON" or "PRIORITY" label.
And in half of these delays, my luggage is forwarded with the same flight number, ...24h later
On the bright side of things, I never lost one.
