Perhaps amenity=luggage_trolley for airport or train station use? In American usage, "trolley" is a synonym for "trolley car", as in street railways. So, you are likely to see American mappers using amenity=trolley for streetcar stops.

It may be a tradition, but it's not a reason for reject directly the proposed
name, it could be discuted before ^^

This tag may be used for the trolleys parking, not as a tag in complement for
shops or airports. And i think "shopping_" is not adapted for be use with an
airport, but why not amenity=trolley.
