Lost Luggage

Thursday, December 21, 2006

In this day and age where modern technology is utilized in every facet of air travel, how is it that airlines are still losing luggage?

After all, airlines have been doing this for a while. Does practice not make perfect? And why does every bag contain a scan-able bar code if airlines aren't scanning the bags to make sure they're going to the correct destination?

As far as I know, my bags are somewhere in Barcelona. Grrr.

It's far beyond that... the connection time plays a big part.. so it's advisable to make it a minimum of one and a half hours. This is a very important issue that should be considered (if you're having a transit point where you'll be changing flights).

Sometimes what happens is that the flight is so overbooked and they would be ordered by the captain to leave some of the baggages behind and send them in the next flight because the safety of the passengers is just more important.

true but they should inform the passenger that they'll be doing that at least to keep the company's image clean.

This happens to anyone who decide to leave Jordan in Christmas time.
