Have you ever had anything stolen from your checked luggage? I had one horrible incident in college when I flew on Bahamas Air (yuck) and my bag didn’t make it on the plane. By the time I received my luggage 2 days later, most of my items were gone. Here is a video of a baggage handler caught stealing from a passenger’s luggage.
Video Baggage Handler Stealing From Bag And An Idea To Keep This From Happening To You…
I usually don’t put really valuable items in my checked luggage, but one thing that I do to possibly help my bag from being targeted is that I use a TSA approved luggage lock on every bag we check. Of course this doesn’t guarantee me that my bags won’t be pillaged but, maybe just maybe guys like this baggage handler will skip over my bag because of the lock.
Do you have any tips or tricks that you think help when checking luggage? Post a comment.
