At airports, long baggage check-in lines at the ticketing counters create pain points for passengers, airlines, and the airports themselves. From the passenger perspective, carrying and shuffling bags is inconvenient and a waste of precious time.
For the airline, in addition to fostering a less-than-pleasurable travel experience, the cost of staffing busy check-in areas is quite expensive. For the airport, these long lines require space that could be used more profitably elsewhere.
And, of course, during the pandemic crisis we are now facing as a country, avoiding crowded, close-contact environments should be a shared priority of the masses.
