air vs govt. Part 3: Luggage tips

So this has become an unplanned series of the airlines losing and selling your luggage with out giving the travelers a refund of the fees. Were just going to run with it. So below we have a few nicely summarized tips in an article by the associated press on how to prevent your luggage from ending up in the baggage graveyard in Alabama. The Associated Press reporting in “6 ways to reduce your chances of losing luggage”

Some tips for reducing your changes of losing your luggage:

– Before your bag disappears behind the ticket counter, make sure the airline’s tag has your name, flight number and final destination.

– Place a copy of your flight itinerary inside your suitcase with your cellphone number and the name of your hotel in case the tag is ripped off.

– If you can’t live without it, don’t check it. It might take days to return a lost bag. Don’t pack medication or outfits for tomorrow’s meeting or wedding. Never check valuables such as jewelry or electronics.

– Make your bag stand out. A bright color or print – or something tied to the handle – prevents somebody from accidentally taking it at baggage claim.

– Prepare your carry-on bag as if it will be checked. You might not have planned to check your bag, but given today’s crowded overhead bins many fliers don’t have a choice.

– If your bag doesn’t arrive, file a claim before you leave the airport. If on a cruise, give your itinerary to the airline so your luggage can be forwarded to the next port.
