1. A baggage drop system for depositing and checking of baggage into airline flights, the system comprising:
a substantially horizontal frame member configured to be mounted:
above a first conveyor equipped with a static or dynamic weighting scale; and
at a distance from an upper surface of the first conveyor substantially equal to a maximum allowable height of baggage thereby forming a physical barrier for oversized baggage;
spaced apart members that support the substantially horizontal frame member arranged at a distance from each other substantially equal to or greater than a maximum allowable width of baggage, wherein the spaced apart members comprise a first spaced apart member configured to couple to a first side of the substantially horizontal frame member and a second spaced apart member configured to couple to a second side of the substantially horizontal frame member; and
computing means configured to compare an output of the weighing scale with allowable baggage weights.
